Fulham's deal for Jermaine Jenas is still unresolved with the midfielders wage demands proving a stumbling block, according to the Daily Mail.
The former England midfielder has played a bit part for Tottenham Hotspur under Harry Redknapp, and with Sandro having emerged last season, his place in the first-team squad appears under threat.
However, any deal for Jenas to join Fulham is unlikely to go through until he reduces his wages demands, otherwise Tottenham will be stuck with him until the end of his contract.
Fulham are keen to bolster their defensive ranks with a full campaign in the Europa League ahead of them, while Tottenham may want to offload Jenas if they have ambitions of keeping Luka Modric, who has been linked with Chelsea.
Chelsea have had several bids rejected for Modric, and if he were to stay then it would be a further blow to Jenas' hopes of breaking into the first team.
The Blues' west London rivals Fulham are however in greater need, as they fight on four fronts this season, with a wafer thin squad at Martin Jol's disposal.
Tottenham are expected to receive another bid from Chelsea for Modric, but are expected to again turn down their advances.
