Fulham's hopes of landing Monaco striker Jan Koller have been dashed after the striker revealed he is to stay with the Ligue 1 outfit.

The Cottagers are one of a number of Premier League sides to have been linked with the giant Czech international this summer.

Lawrie Sanchez was reported to have been in touch with Monaco to discuss a fee for Koller.

But the powerful frontman, who came close to joining the Cottagers six years ago, said: "I have decided to stay at Monaco."
