More than one site is linking Fulham's Martin Jol with a move for Ben Hamer. One Fulham site says, 'The six feet four inches tall twenty-five year-old is starting to carve out a reputation at the Valley and is possibly seen as the long term replacement for forty year-old Mark Schwarzer.'
However, Jol may have competition as Nottingham Forest are also reported to be considering making a move for the keeper in the January transfer window.
Hamer has his critics and is still developing as a player, but his departure would be a blow. Button remains an unknown quantity.
Congratulations to the youth team on their 1-0 victory at Wolves last night in the FA Youth Cup. Holmes-Dennis scored the winner in the 65th minute. Wolves threw on their secret weapon in the form of Dylan Stringer-Moth, but to no avail.
Dan Seaborne has extended his loan at Charlton on a week-to-week basis. He was expressing a wish in the programme a couple of weeks ago for something longer term, but I doubt whether that will happen.
