Coleman recently stated that it would take a ‘staggering’ bid for Fulham to even consider letting Diop go.

Now we have Diop’s agent Willie McKay, saying that Fulham will sell fullstop if the price is right. Nothing like attracting interest for a client is there!

‘It has been no surpise to me he has done well, he is big and strong, has two good feet, is fantastic in the air and has a great shot. He has got the whole lotm he is ready made for the Premiership and he does the business for Fulham.

He did well in the World Cup, scoring the goal against France in the first game, and after the tournament everybody wanted to sign him – Barcelona, AC Milan, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Admittedly his form dipped a little but because he had this opportunity to go to big clubs but Lens would not sell him.

Then he came on trial with Portsmouth and they could not make a decision, so Fulham were able to come in for him.

Fulham have offered him a new contract, which is suitable to him. Bouba wanted to sign for a further year and that is what they have given him. So he is quite happy, is focused on Fulham and Chris Coleman loves him.

I know there is a lot of interest and if a club puts the right offer in I am sure it will be accepted.
