Fulham boss Hodgson admits Villa fullback Shorey can sign permanently

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson admits he's keen to sign permanently on-loan Aston Villa fullback Nicky Shorey.

Fulham have an option to sign him in the summer, 24 months after Hodgson first tried to sign the England international.

He said: "A price has been put on Nicky's head if, at the end of the loan period, he wants to stay and we certainly want to keep him.

"He's a player we considered many times.

"When he was at Reading we were interested, but the price and wages he could command took him out of our reach and he went to Aston Villa."
