Fulham boss Martin Jol was a big influence on Lasse Vigen Christensen joining the Cottagers.

The Denmark U17 star was a target for clubs across Europe before his transfer was confirmed yesterday.

"Fulham is different to many other clubs, they have a Dutch approach to young talent. Martin Jol sets the agenda around the club and he wants young players to come up to the first team," agent Gulli Tomasson told Bold.

"You can see now that 18-year-old Kerim Frei is already getting plenty of matches in the first team.

"The road to the first team at Fulham is much shorter than with other clubs, the teams train side by side and if they lack any first-team players, they call up the youngsters."
