Sky Sports News are reporting that Martin Jol has had a bid turned down for Dnipro midfielder Derek Boateng, merely months after suffering a similar fate in the January transfer window.

As such, it is clear that Jol is keen to add Boateng to his ranks, with our Dutch manager viewing the Ghana international's versatility as a key asset. Boateng can operate, effectively, at both centre half and centre midfield.

Boateng himself is after a move away from Ukraine, despite only signing in 2011. He sees the Premier League as a particularly attractive choice, after stints in Greece, Sweden, Germany and Spain. His club, however, will only sanction a deal if the right price is agreed, even though the Dnipro coach, one Juande Ramos, has admitted that Boateng wants to leave.

It is thought that Fulham will return with a slightly improved offer.
