Fulham caretaker boss Parker wants to keep hold of Cairney and Mitrovic

Fulham caretaker boss Scott Parker wants to keep hold of Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Mirror says Parker said after the win at Bournemouth that he wants both Serbian striker Mitrovic and midfielder Cairney to stay in order to build a squad to get out of the Championship next season.

The Cottagers may now offer both new deals in order to try to persuade each to stay. But Mitrovic, valued at £30m by the club and only signed last summer, has already had offers from China, and West Ham and Crystal Palace are both interested.

Cairney still has four years of his current deal to run and is more likely to stay. Turkish club Fenerbahce are though also interested in forward Ryan Babel.

Parker's chances of landing the manager's job full time in the summer have been boosted by the wins over Everton and Bournemouth – but the club have also looked at Celtic manager Neil Lennon as a possible appointment.
