Martin Jol admits he is hoping to strengthen Fulham’s midfield with free agents but has ruled out moves for Owen Hargreaves and former Bolton and Aston Villa star Nigel Reo-Coker.

With Mahamadou Diarra’s knee problem likely to keep him out for another four weeks and new signing Giorgos Karagounis still working towards match fitness, Jol’s side are light in midfield.

Jol says he hopes to bring in a mystery foreign player next week and has rejected links with Englishmen Hargreaves and Reo-Coker.

“We’re trying to do something in the next couple of days but not with Nigel Reo-Coker or Owen Hargreaves,” he said.

“It will be a central midfielder from abroad and we will have to test him to see if he’s fit and then we will talk to him.

“I’m confident of having the deal sorted next week.”
