Fulham target Maarten Stekelenburg is set to stay with Roma, according to his agent.

The Dutch international, who was once a target for Manchester United, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Italian capital, with Mauro Goicoechea having taken his position between the sticks in recent times.

Cottagers chief Martin Jol is said to be keen to draft in a new stopper, with current number one Mark Schwarzer now 40 and back-up David Stockdale having moved to Hull on loan.

He has outlined Stekelenburg, who has 54 senior international caps, as one of his top targets.

It’s rumoured that Roma are willing to sell, but his agent Rob Jansen stated that there have been no bids made for the 30-year-old:

“At the moment there are just rumours and journalistic speculation.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail via calciomercato.

“We have yet to receive a concrete offer, so it is therefore probable that he will stay at Roma in January rather than leave.

“We know what is moving in the goalkeeping market, but nothing has been decided.”

Jol has also been linked with Birmingham’s Jack Butland, who is believed to be available for around £6m.

But, he may face competition from Liverpool and Southampton, who are said to be tracking the 19-year-old England star.
