Fulham reject offer from QPR for Andy Johnson
Friday 06 January 2012
Fulham have rejected an offer from QPR for Andrew Johnson, Press Association Sport understands.
The 30-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season and he has been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage during the January transfer window.
It is understood three clubs are interested in Johnson, but Fulham have rejected the only firm offer for the striker from QPR after it was deemed unacceptable.
Fulham manager Martin Jol was coy when questioned about the striker's future in this afternoon's press conference, but later confirmed to Fulham TV they have received an offer from the Rs.
"What's the point for us, for Fulham, for my club to sell a player for that sort of money?," he said.
"To get somebody will cost a lot more money so for me there is no problem. He is still under contract so we have to wait and see.
"Of course, if somebody wants him they have to pay a good transfer fee so we can buy another good player.
"But I told Andy what's the point of selling him for that kind of money to a rival.
"So I think it would not be best for us to sell him to whatever club for a lower fee.
"Of course he will stay here and if he is not signing he can leave at the end of the season."
