Fulham boss Martin Jol has revealed he chose not to sign Ajax midfielder Eyong Enoh on a permanent basis because of his £3m price tag.
Enoh spent the second half of last season on loan at Craven Cottage and made nine Premier League appearances for the Whites.
Jol had an option to buy the Cameroon international midfielder for £3million this summer but the fee involved and the fact that the 27-year-old is not a regular starter for the Amsterdam club put him off.
"Eyong Enoh did a good job for us but the option to buy him was £3m, which is too much when he's not even playing at Ajax," he said.
Jol also confirmed he wouldn't be pursuing PSV defender Stanislav Manolev, who also spent six months on loan at the Cottage last term.
