Fulham in profit and debt-free


Fulham are clear of debt after owner Mohamed Al Fayed converted loans totalling more than £200m into shares in the club. The club have released limited figures from their financial report for the 2011-12 season, which included an operating profit of £1.2m.

Al Fayed said: "Fulham continues to make great strides and, following planning permission for the redevelopment of the Riverside Stand, we will continue to prosper and grow."

Emmanuel Frimpong, the midfielder on loan from Arsenal, is in line to make his debut in tonight's game against West Ham, whose manager, Sam Allardyce, admits there is "total confusion" over the future of his midfielder Mohamed Diame. "There are certain situations where we might lose him. I hope we don't," Allardyce said.
