Fulham failed in a bid to land Birmingham’s Cameron Jerome earlier this summer.
Bobby Zamora broke his hand a week ago, but the 29-year-old is reportedly fit to play.

“Of course, there are always players.
“Even abroad, there are one or two players we had a look at. We made a bid as well.
“If they accept it then we’ve got a new player.
“But if they don’t, we go on like it is.”
