Stekelenburg edges closer to exit

Maarten Stekelenburg’s agent has confirmed the Netherlands goalkeeper has serious issues with Roma coach Zdenek Zeman as talk of a transfer to Fulham intensifies.

Stekelenburg, 30, joined Roma in the summer of 2011 and, after quickly establishing himself as first choice under former coach Luis Enrique, has lost his place to Mauro Goicoechea under Zeman in the current campaign.

The player and his representatives met with the club’s director general, Franco Baldini, on Tuesday to discuss his future as he has made just nine appearances this term.

There had been no further comment from either party, but now Stekelenburg’s agent, Rob Jansen, has finally confirmed he may be forced to leave the capital club, laying blame for that firmly with the Czech tactician.

“It’s a serious problem of course between him and the coach,” Jansen told Goal.com on Saturday. “We are dealing with the situation with Roma in a very transparent and correct way. He’s not made any final decision about leaving or whether he will stay there. We are looking at the market and if we have to act then we know what to do.”

The Italian media has this week speculated about possible moves to AC Milan and Arsenal as well as Fulham.

Jansen added: “The Premier League is one of the best competitions in the world so every player wants to experience that. We are working on some things.

“It’s true Martin Jol knows him well, but there are more situations which we are dealing with at the moment. There are more options that could be a possibility but we are moving step by step. It could be by the end of January and otherwise we will pick it up later on.”
