Palace ready to hijack Fulham’s bid
It’s believed by the paper that whilst the West London club are negotiating over a fee, Palace manager Ian Holloway is making a move for the 27 year old in an attempt to strengthen his midfield.
Enoh spent the second half of last season on loan with the Cottagers.
Despite only appearing nine times for the club, Martin Jol wants to capitalise on the unrest between the player and his current club Ajax, with the Dutch champions ready and willing to offload him.
Talks are on-going with both the London clubs, but the midfielder’s agent, Stephan Brandli, believes that Craven Cottage would be his ideal destination.
Premier League Priority
Brandli told the Daily Mail, “’His first choice is Fulham and the Premier League. Crystal Palace initially tried to sign another player but they didn’t manage to get him so now the interest has moved to Eyong (Enoh). I believe the two clubs are in talks”.
Olympiakos have also made a move for the Cameroonian, which he revealed to the Dutch media, however his agent has ruled that move out as negotiations fell through and now a return to the Premier League is the priority.
Brandli added, “I think Olympiakos is not going to be interesting for us. We really don’t see a reason to move to Greece”. The £3million international was quoted in De Telegraaf saying, “Crystal Palace has been reported. I am honoured by the interest”.
If the South London club do secure his signature from under their London rival’s noses, then it would be a role reversal of sorts from a couple of weeks ago, when Jol brought Darren Bent in on loan from Aston Villa when it looked as though the Eagles had a deal wrapped up for the striker.
Holloway’s men are still waiting for their first win of the campaign, whilst the Cottagers have won one and lost one.
