Fulham boss Jol happy to be reunited with Taarabt

Fulham boss Martin Jol is excited by his reunion with QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt.

Taarabt moved to England from Lens in 2007, linking up with a Tottenham side then managed by Jol.

"I have known him now for a long time," the Dutchman said. "When I was at Hamburg, I wanted him but thought the money Daniel Levy asked for was too much.

"Then I went to Ajax and I thought it was too much for a player that never played.

"Then I was too late after that because he went to QPR, where he did ever so well.

"Remember the fact he was an over £10million player 12 months ago, so I think you have to take them when they are bad and hopefully he will show his potential here."
