Fulham skipper Danny Murphy is excited by the midfield Martin Jol has built this season.

Murphy remains influential at Fulham, though now has greater support from the likes of Mousa Dembele and Mahamadou Diarra.

He said: "Playing with people like Mousa and Clint and Diarra is a joy. Mousa? Sometimes I give him the ball then stand back and watch - and forget to go and help him.

"That's because watching him is so pleasing on the eye. He glides past people. When his end product gets that little bit better he's going to be a superb player, he's got a fantastic future.

"Diarra has come in and steadied the ship. He is an experienced boy, keeps the ball well, gives us a nice balance. And you've got Clint, who we've all raved about. He's probably enjoyed the best season any Fulham player has had in ages."
