Fulham will miss out on Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg after his agent revealed the Italian club will not sell in January.
Martin Jol is on the search for a new goalkeeper at Craven Cottage with 40-year-old Mark Schwarzer on his way out and youngster David Stockdale not hitting the form expected.
The former Ajax man has made 33 appearances for the Serie A side since joining in August 2011, but speculation around his future started after he was replaced as the number one.
The 30-year-old's representative Rob Jansen has held talks with Roma's general director Franco Baldini but a move away in January has been ruled out by club officials.
"I spoke with Franco Baldini, and at the moment there is no possibility that Stekelenburg leaves Roma," Jansen said.
"There are no offers from other clubs, but we are at the beginning of January and everything is still possible."
