Stekelenburg disappoints Fulham and opts for Roma stay

Fulham target Maarten Stekelenburg says he does not want to move to the Premier League amid rumours he could leave Roma, reports talkSPORT. The 30 year old wanted to join the Cottagers in the January transfer window after he lost his first team place to Mauro Goicoechea.

He has since won his place back under Aurelio Andreazzoli and now he does not want to play for Martin Jol.

"There is no reason to leave," he said. "I knew that I could do well and I know how football works.

"It was a very difficult period for me, but the new coach has faith in my abilities."
