Derek Boateng: Could be leaving Fulham

Sky Sports understands that the Hornets have made an approach for the 30-year-old midfielder, who has seen his chances limited since moving to Craven Cottage in the summer.

Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen is set to sanction the deal, as Boateng is looking for regular first-team football in order to cement his place in Ghana's squad ahead of the World Cup finals.

A number of teams from around the continent have expressed an interest but Watford are hopeful Boateng will elect to stay in England, albeit in the Championship.

"We are looking at a number of options for Derek, and are talking with Fulham to see what the best outcome will be," a spokesman for Boateng's representatives Straight Ace Sports told Sky Sports.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
