Fulham boss Martin Jol is expecting to be able to splash the cash in January.

The Dutch manager has overseen the departure of a number of key players, but hopes chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed will be prepared to reinvest that money in the next window

The Cottagers currently sit in ninth place in the Premier League, and the Dutch manager believes funds will be provided by Mohamed Al-Fayed should he request them.

The Fulham boss told London24: “He [Al-Fayed] said before the season you can spend the same amount as last year and we sold for over £30 million and only bought for £8m. So I am 100 per cent certain he knows there is a lot in the kitty.”

Fulham sold Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey for over £20m during the final days of the summer window, leaving Jol little time to reinvest.

The west London club also made a significant profit on Bobby Zamora last January, and released a number of high earners, such as Danny Murphy and Pavel Pogbrebnyak, off the wage bill during the off-season. Jol hopes to reinvest those funds into revamping his playing squad in the new year.
