Fulham owner Khan planning Jol transfer talks

New Fulham owner Shahid Khan is ready for transfer talks with manager Martin Jol.

Khan is due to fly to Costa Rica on Friday to watch Fulham in the club's pre-season tour and will speak to Jol, who he "hopes" will start the season as manager.

"I have a lot to learn. I love football - or soccer - and there is great management here. They have a plan.

"I am not a micro- manager so the business I developed - which is auto parts, from a garage to where we are now - there was a key lesson, which is to find the best people, empower them and support them.

"My goal would be to support the football leadership and business leadership, give them all the resources, money and otherwise, and expect results.

"I have not met him [Jol] but I will meet him. I'm planning on going to Costa Rica this week. This transaction happened late in the day and the team had already left. So I haven't had the chance."
