Martin Jol is looking to bring in Turkish goalkeeper Sinan Bolat in the January transfer window, with a view to provide competition to current number one, Mark Schwarzer.

The Standard Liege stopper, according to EatSleepSport, is already in Fulham and speaking to the club with Jol keen to send David Stockdale on loan and ensure ample cover is available for his first choice, Australian 'keeper.

At 24, and already a fully-fledged Turkish international, Bolat has his best years ahead of him and, despite a wealth of goalkeepers already at the club, Jol views Bolat highly enough to bring him to South West London.

Bolat boasts the strange record of being the only 'keeper to ever score a Champions League goal in open play after firing home a header in a 1-1 draw with AZ Alkmaar back in 2009.
