Look's like Jol won't be going after all
Martin Jol is reportedly set to snub Fulham to stay with Dutch giants Ajax.
Former Tottenham manager Jol was expected to be named the Fulham boss this week after holding talks with the West London club about succeeding Roy Hodgson at Craven Cottage.
Jol had earlier indicated he was prepared to leave Ajax and move to Fulham because of uncertainty over the futures of a number of star players at Ajax.
However, reports emanating from Holland claim Jol has agreed to stick with Ajax after last-ditch talks with the club's hierarchy.
"They (Fulham) were interested but in principle I will stay at Ajax," Jol told De Telegraaf.
However, Sky Sports sources understands Jol is keen to move to Fulham and that the switch is being held up by Ajax's refusal to negotiate over compensation.
It is understood that Jol wants to succeed Hodgson at Craven Cottage but his path is being blocked by Ajax, who are keen to retain the 54-year-old.
