The Reo-Coker transfer saga has taken a slightly different turn, a positive one for the player it seems.
Reo-Coker has rejected many a move in order to play in the Premier League. With recent links with teams in Italy, Germany and Charlton Athletic, it now seems he may be on his way to Craven Cottage after Fulham manager Martin Jol is being forced to bring in free agents due to the injury crisis at the London club.
It looks like that his prayers may have been answered in somewhat a strange fashion as there was no guarantee of Reo-Coker playing with a Premier League team due to none requiring his services during the summer’s transfer window.
Although there were reports earlier in the summer’s transfer window, linking Reo-Coker to Fulham, with further reports suggesting NRC rejected a deal due to a disagreement over their terms, there was nothing concrete linking NRC to a Premier League team with a firm interest.
If Martin Jol does lure Reo-Coker to Craven Cottage – maybe with slightly differing terms than the previous effort, the former Bolton midfielder will be Jol’s 2nd free agent signing after bringing in Greek, Giorgos Karagounis who formerly played for Inter Milan, Panathinaikos and Benfica.
