Fulham boss rules out move for Sunderland target; Chelsea, Roma and Arsenal make the headlines
Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has ruled out a move for Sunderland target Chris Martin.
Chris Coleman remains desperate for new strikers and is waiting for developments on a deal for striker Martin.
The Derby County striker has been with the Rams squad on a warm-weather training camp in Dubai this past week but is now back in the country.
Jokanovic said: “Martin won’t come back to Fulham. I make no comments on different rumours.”
