Davies may need to leave Fulham if he wants game time

Fulham manager Martin Jol has suggested that Simon Davies will only be a bit-part player if he remains at the club next season.

Fulham manager Martin Jol has suggested that Simon Davies will only be a bit-part player if he remains at the club next season.

The 32-year old Welshman is out of contract in the summer and has seen the likes of Kerim Frei and Alex Kacaniklic go past him in Jol’s attacking midfield pecking order.

Jol insists that he has no problems with Davies but has indicated he may want to look for a new club if he wants to play regularly next term.

"He was involved at first, but was injured for eight, nine months, then I took him back," Jol told the Fulham Chronicle.

"But I've got a few youngsters and I don't want to just create a space for the older players all the time – and I think I had to do this from the start of the season.

"The only youngster player here was Matthew Briggs and the average was 31, so it was the oldest team in Europe.

"He (Davies) is a great boy. He can play on the left, on the right, or in midfield and I can even use him as a right back like I did before."
