The Whites boss admitted that he was expecting interest in the star players at the club

Fulham manager Martin Jol is prepared to sell his stars, as long as the price is right to allow the Dutchman to bring in the players he wants.

Brede Hangeland, Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey are apparently attracting interest and the leading clubs could make a bid for the trio.

"We have now got two or three players with a very good value and we will have to wait and see," said Jol.

"There is a lot of interest from other clubs in my players and that is why I have to try to use my background and experience to find younger players.

"For me, it is not a problem because I feel we have that philosophy, not like in Germany and Holland.

"They have a big party if they sell someone for 20million, but here it is different. If you sell a player here, everybody says you are a selling club, but I am used to that.

"I will always shake hands with them if they can go to the Chelseas, the Manchester Citys or the Manchester Uniteds or Arsenals of this world.

"It is not a problem for me. The only thing I dont like is if they say before the season starts that they want to play Champions League football, but that is another issue."
