Manager Martin Jol signed the 29-year-old free agent on a short-term contract in October after losing Mahamadou Diarra to injury.

Diarra, though, made a quick return from his knee problem and the recovery has left Tavares behind the Mali international and Chris Baird in Jol's plans.

But with Fulham facing 11 Premier League games before the end of 2012, the former Middlesbrough player could benefit from squad rotation.

"Tavares was a back-up player for me for Diarra and Chris Baird," said Jol in the Fulham Chronicle.

"There was not the situation where I could bring Tavares as well but hopefully he could be involved in the next couple of months."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
