Adel Taarabt: Set to join Fulham

Martin Jol has confirmed QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt will undergo a medical at Fulham on Tuesday ahead of a proposed loan move.

A firm fans' favourite at Loftus Road, the 24-year-old last summer extended his contract with the Hoops amid reported interest from Paris St Germain.

However, Taarabt has had a tumultous summer at relegated QPR and is now set to join west London rivals Fulham."We agreed everything with the club so the only thing we have to do is a medical," Jol said.

"If that is sound and good, he will join us. The medical will be tomorrow.

"I like his creativity and, of course, sometimes it comes off when he scores a lot of goals and I think he was involved in 40 goals [during the 2010/11 Championship promotion season].

"It is like Dimitar Berbatov - sometimes these fantastic talents will be blamed but I hope to find a way to gel him in together with the boys we've got.

"I think he can do a hell of a job for us because is a tremendous player on the ball."

Taarabt moved to England from Lens in 2007, linking up with a Tottenham side then managed by Jol.

"I have known him now for a long time," the Dutchman added. "When I was at Hamburg, I wanted him but thought the money Daniel Levy asked for was too much.

"Then I went to Ajax and I thought it was too much for a player that never played.

"Then I was too late after that because he went to QPR, where he did ever so well.

"Remember the fact he was an over £10million player 12 months ago, so I think you have to take them when they are bad and hopefully he will show his potential here."Jol suggested a much-speculated move for Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo would prove too costly and was coy when asked about Aston Villa striker Darren Bent.

"I don't speculate on things that are not 100 per cent," he said.

"The only thing with Adel is his medical so I can inform you. Darren Bent, hopefully we can tell you something or another player by the end of the week.

"We've got several doors open, so for us it is only us to make a decision and get the player."
