Fulham are to return the statue of Michael Jackson outside Craven Cottage back to the club's former owner Mohamed Al Fayed.

The sculpture was installed at the back of the Hammersmith Stand in 2011, in tribute to the late entertainer, whom Fayed insisted was a fan of the west London club.

Fulham were bought by American Shahid Khan in a £150million deal during the summer, and initially it had appeared the Jackson statue would remain in place.

However, it now appears Fayed will take the statue to one of his other properties as the club press on with plans to revamp their home on the banks of the Thames.

A Fulham spokesperson said: "The statue is not part of the Riverside development of the stadium and will be returned to the former chairman in due course."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
