Fulham manager Martin Jol has set his sights on Kevin Nolan, as the Newcastle skipper fields interest from multiple clubs after contract talks stalled, according to the Metro.

Nolan is reportedly unhappy with the length of his contract at Newcastle, with the 28-year-old hoping he would get a five year deal, and Newcastle not willing to offer more than two years.


Fulham have yet to make their moves in the transfer window, with new manager Jol hinting that some changes will be made to the squad. Jol has reportedly had a talk with Chris Hughton, who was Newcastle manager until December, and the Fulham man believes that Nolan will be a good leader for the club and bring the team together behind the scenes.

The move will seal a very busy transfer period for Newcastle, who have also told Joey Barton he won’t be receiving a new contract, while Alan Smith has been advised to find another club in the summer.

Should Nolan head for Fulham, Newcastle will have some extra cash to add to their £35 million budget from Andy Carroll's sale to Liverpool, and with Alan Pardew reportedly looking into the continental market for cheaper players, an overhaul of the Toon squad looks likely.
