Fulham boss Martin Jol is confident signing Sascha Riether permanently.

The fullback is on-loan from Cologne.

"Sascha is a fans' favourite," Jol told Deutsche Pressagentur. "He is the right-back in my starting XI.

"He runs, he works and he has a good view of situations. I am glad to have him at this club.

"We possess an option [to buy him]. If we are to exercise it, he will have to remain at our club. But if he is not happy, we would have to talk then.

"But I really don't think that this is the case with him. I think he feels fine being a first-team regular with us."
