Martin Jol plans to shore up Fulham's midfield with a player from his days at Hamburg.

The Whites lost a number key midfielders this summer, with Mousa Dembele, Clint Dempsey and Danny Murphy the headline departures. Giorgos Karagounis and Kieran Richardson have been brought in to bolster numbers but, with Mahamadou Diarra out injured for at least a month, Jol plans to bring in a defensive midfielder.

The Dutchman rejected talk it could be Owen Hargreaves or Nigel Reo-Coker, revealing instead it would be a player from abroad - and one he managed during the season the spent in charge at Hamburg. He said: "It will be a holding player because I had Chris Baird there last week and I needed him elsewhere because Senderos is still injured."
