'Bakary Sako now goes for a few million to Fulham' says Wolves defender

Defender Georg Margreitter says claims his team mate will be one of the first to leave the club after their relegation to League One

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Georg Margreitter has claimed that his team mate, Bakary Sako, will join Fulham after the Midlands side's relegation to League One.

Speaking in a newspaper interview in his native Austria, Margreitter said: "Bakary Sako now goes for a few million to Fulham. Not bad for a loser."

Sako, a left winger, has been one of few highlights in an otherwise disastrous campaign for Wolves. Having signed from Saint-Etienne, the player has made 39 appearances in England, scoring 10 goals and assisting 11, mostly from the left wing.

However, Sako is equally adept at playing on the right wing, as an attacking midfielder or as a striker. His versatility and his age - 25 years-old - will be hugely appealing to Fulham boss, Martin Jol.

Despite Margreitter's comments, there is expected to be far more competition for his signature than just our own, with other Premier League outfits showing an interest in the player. West Ham United, Southampton and Aston Villa are all following the player's fortunes.

With Alexander Kacaniklic blossoming after his loan spell with Burnley, and Dejagah on top form before being struck by injury, it's difficult to see quite where Sako would fit in but, with Wolves' new demotion, a transfer may well prove inexpensive on Fulham's part.

If the price is right, this could well go through.
