Standard Liege stopper may return to Craven Cottage.
Fulham manager Martin Jol has refused to rule out a move for Turkish international goalkeeper Sinan Bolat despite his trial with the Craven Cottage club coming to an end.
Bolat, who is second choice between the posts for Standard Liege in the Belgian top flight, spent a spell training with Fulham as looks to regain his fitness following injury problems.
The 28-year-old has returned to Liege ahead of the resumption of the Belgian season following a winter break, but Jol will continue to track his progress before deciding whether to sign the goalkeeper.
“Bolat is back in Belgium, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens,” Jol told the Fulham Chronicle. “He was injured – a cruciate ligament – so wasn’t back to his best level.
“The only problem with him is that Liege have a very good goalkeeper and I don’t think he will play a lot of games, so we can’t keep an eye on him. If he plays it will be easier for us.”
Fulham’s number one Mark Schwarzer is getting no younger, but continues to be the first choice under Jol, while his understudy David Stockdale has been called into the England squad previously meaning the Fulham boss is not in an urgency to make a decision on Bolat.
