The agent of Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has denied reports that he will join Fulham in the January transfer window.
Stekelenburg, 30, moved to AS Roma from Ajax 18 months ago after playing under Fulham boss Martin Jol at the Amsterdam ArenA. And with Mark Schwarzer nearing the end of his career it was reported Stekelenburg could be signed as his successor.
He only returned to the Roma first team on Tuesday in a 3-0 Coppa Italia win over Atalanta after almost two months out injured. And now agent Rob Jansen has rubbished suggestions that his client could move to the Premier League when the transfer window reopens.
"I categorically deny these rumours, there has been no contact with the London club nor with (Fulham boss) Martin Jol," Jansen told Italian football website www.calciomercato.it. "He is happy at Roma and his relationship with [coach Zdenek] Zeman is excellent."
