Fulham boss Martin Jol is set to re-open his interest in Derek Boateng.

Martin Jol tried to sign the 29-year-old back in January, but a work permit dispute with his Ukrainian club Dnipro stopped any chance of a move. The same thing happened when the Ghanaian midfielder tried to join Greek club Olympiakos before a deal collapsed.

According to Sky Sports, the Fulham gaffer may try and sign Boateng once again however, with the former Tottenham chief eager to bring the player to Craven Cottage.

Jol is a huge admirer of the Ghanian defensive midfielder, who has recently become a free agent after the player settled a contract dispute with his Ukrainian side Dnipro. The Accra-born footballer won a case to free himself from his contract from his club at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland.

Boateng nearly joined Middlesbrough in 2003, but a work permit issue once again stopped the player from coming to England. They got name-sake George instead.

Fulham refused to give an official comment on the situation of the midfielder, but Sky Sports understands the player could potentially be heading to the Cottagers to boost Martin Jol's summer recruitment.
