Fulham boss Martin Jol has hopes of making a defensive signing in the coming days.

The Dutchman has cooled his interest in versatile Parma defender Yohan Benalouane, but hopes to make one more addition before the window slams shut on Monday night.

"I don't think it [deadline day] will be as hectic as it was here over the last season when we had one or two players coming in on the last day," he said.

"But there are always wishes for any manager.

"I think at the back, for example, we could do with a player, but we'll have to wait and see.

"Of course Aaron Hughes could always play right-back for Sascha, but we will have to wait and see - maybe there will be one."
