The future of Martin Jol at Fulham is under a cloud.
The People says Jolâ€™s relationship with chief executive Alastair Mackintosh is said to be approaching breaking point, with the Dutchman sceptical about demands from the board that players must be promoted through the clubâ€™s youth system.
Fulham have spent extensively on recruiting overseas talent for a youth team which has enjoyed plenty of success â€“ but none have come close to establishing themselves in the first team.
Jol, in turn, believes Fulhamâ€™s ageing squad needs an extensive overhaul, but has been told that he will not have significant funds to spend, despite making a hefty profit last summer after the Â£15m sale of Moussa Dembele to Spurs.
Fulham claim they have taken up an option to extend Jolâ€™s initial two-year contract to include next season as well.
But with his relationship with the board so strained, the west London club may be willing to accept a compensation settlement from any potential suitor for Jol.
