FC Twente goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov has said that Fulham made an approach for him during the January transfer window according to Sky Sports.

However, the Dutch side rebuffed Martin Jol’s advances as they felt they wouldn’t be able to find a suitable replacement before the window closed.

But according to the Bulgarian there are now more sides interested in his services. Speaking with the Dutch press he told of the growing interest in him but refused to name names; “There are more clubs interested than just Fulham,” he said, “However, at the moment I want to focus fully on my job at Twente.”

The 24-year-old  had joined Liverpool in 2007 but failed to make a single appearance for the Reds. He was then loaned out to Twente for three consecutive seasons before making the switch permanent last summer.

Mihaylov began his career in his homeland with Levski Sofia but made a name for himself in the Netherlands where he helped the club to an Eredivisie, two Johan Cruijf shields and a KNVB cup. He has also been capped 26 times for the Bulgarian national side.

Fulham are seeking a replacement for Mark Schwarzer who is thought to be hanging up his gloves at the end of his current contract, which runs out at the end of the season.

Twente are said to be looking for a fee of around £5 million to let the stopper move on.
