Fulham manager Roy Hodgson was interviewed on Sky Sports today, and said there is a possibility Jimmy Bullard could be allowed to move on in January, if a club meets the fee they want for the player.
Jimmy Bullard – available in January for the right fee
Jimmy’s contract runs out in the summer and he’s resisted re-signing for Fulham in the hopes of getting a better contract at Fulham or some other club.
Bullard has been playing well for Fulham, and we wonder if Joe Kinnear would be interested in the player.
Hodgson cannot expect to get much for him since Bullard will be available for nothing in the summer, and he will surely get lots of offers at that time.
If a club wants to nail him down before the summer scramble, then they will need to pay some money for him, but we cannot believe it would take more than £2M to £3M to sign him next month, if that.
It seems like Bullard could be a Joe Kinnear type player, as he plays with plenty of spirit and is a decent player in the middle of the park, and he’s proved himself in the Premier League.
The 29 year-old was at Wigan Athletic until 2006, where he played 145 times with 10 goals, before moving to Craven Cottage.
Joe may be able to get better value outside the UK however, and we’ll have to wait and see if Joe is interested at all in the 5’11” tall Newham, England born midfielder.
