Fulham to offload five players in January
2009-12-09 - Added by
Fulham boss Roy Hodgson will look to offload five bit-part players in the January transfer window as he looks to trim the wage bill at Craven Cottage.
The Daily Mail claims the Cottagers have informed Premier League and Championship clubs Toni Kallio, Fredrik Stoor, Seol Ki-Hyeon, Eddie Johnson and David Elm are all available for transfer.
The quintet have made just four substitute appearances between them in the league this season and Hodgson is willing to cut his losses as he looks to futher streamline his squad.
Defender Kallio, 31, joined the club back in January 2008 from Swiss side Young Boys, but has struggled to force his way into the first-team picture and is currently on loan with Sheffield United.
Stoor only joined Fulham 12 months ago from Rosenborg in a £1million deal after catching the eye for Sweden at Euro 2008, but has failed to shine and has also been shipped out on loan - this time to Derby County.
Ki-Hyeon arrived in 2007 form Reading but agian has failed to make his mark, much in the same way as striking duo Johnson and Elm, who are behind Bobby Zamora, Andy Johnson, Clint Dempsey and Erik Nevland in the pecking order.
USA international Johnson did spend time at Cardiff on loan last season, and would appear to be the most attractive option for prospective buyers.
