Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez has confirmed he is interested in signing Celtic midfielder Thomas Gravesen.
The former Northern Ireland boss approached Celtic to enquire whether Gravesen was available and could follow up his interest before the transfer deadline next Friday.
The Cottagers have not yet launched a formal bid for the 31-year-old Dane who has been out of favour at Parkhead.
Sanchez told BBC Sport: 'I have been in contact with Celtic but that's really as far as it goes.
'Gravesen is a player I admire but no bid has been made.
'I simply asked Celtic about his availability and why he's not been in their plans lately.'
