Fulham manager Martin Jol has revealed defender Rafik Halliche could leave the club before the end of the transfer window.

The Algeria international has found his chances at Craven Cottage limited and could follow Carlos Salcido out of the club on-loan.

Jol said: “I think Halliche is a good player, better than we probably give him credit for because he could not show last year and couldn’t show this year.

“But, of course, I have different players at the back – good players – so there is probably not an opportunity for him to play.

“If I work hard to find something and he is working hard, I think if he can play for another club then he can raise his profile which is good for him and good for us.”

He added: “I don’t expect him to leave before the end of the transfer window, but that is what Halliche hopes for and that is what I hope for.”
