If, as expected, Big Martin Jol is confirmed as the new Fulham boss, a sizeable chunk of the supposed £20m transfer kitty to be handed to him by Mohamed Al Fayed is being reserved for a move to bring Robbie Keane with him to Craven Cottage.
Despite a last ditch attempt from current employers Ajax to keep the former Spurs boss in Holland, Jol spent Monday afternoon accompanied by his brother and agent in thrashing out the final details of his move back to the English Premier League.
Once finalised and announced, Jol intends to raid his former employers at the Lane for out of favour striker Robbie Keane. Keane, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Parkhead with Celtic is thought to be available for around £5-7m and with the pair having enjoyed such a good relationship in the past, the Dutchman is keen to bring in the Republic Of Ireland international to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new season.
Whilst at Spurs, Keane was always Jol’s main striker, ahead of Defoe,Kanoute and Mido. So it comes as no suprise that with Spurs looking to sell that big MJ is looking to buy. Lets all be honest here, how many of us Spurs fans will be having a bit of a soft spot for Fulham next season, would love to see Jol return to us one day, he will always be ours but wherever he is I am sure most Tottenham fans wish him all the best.
