As confirmed by Boss Martin Jol the latest signing by Fulham Adel Taarabt on loan basis from QPR will undergo Medical on Tuesday. The midfeilder was not a part of the 18-man opening squad for the opening Sky Bet Championship game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday and endured a tumultuous summer at Loftus Road.
Allegedly Taarabt was rumored to have a move to Paris Saint-Germain over the summer but now is now set for a quick return to the Premier League post suffering a heartache of relegation in the last season. When Jol was in charge of the Hotspurs he introduced the talented Moroccan player in England as a teenager.
He initially had made some starts for the White Hart Lane club rather than going out twice on loan to QPR with whom he later joined on permenant basis in 2010 for a fee of £1m. It was confirmed at a news at a press conference after Cottagers faced a tie of 1-1 against Real Betis in La Liga. Jol answered to the questions asked by media that they had agreed with all the terms of the club and the only thing left was the medical which if turns out to be good and sound Taarabt will join them.
Jol appreciated the midfielder for his creativity which sometimes helps him to score lots of goals as he was also seen involved in the 40 goals during the 2010/11 Championship promotion season. He compared him to Dimitar Berbatov who had these fantastic talents and but hopes him to gel with other boys they have got. Jol is pretty confident that he can do hell of a job as he thinks he is a tremendous player with the ball.
Knowing him for a long time when Jol was at hamburg,he had approached Daniel Levy for him but was turned down by the amount he asked for and later after goin to ajax he realised that it was too much for a player that never played.
On the note of the history Jol said “Later I was too late because Adel went to QPR, where he did ever so well. Remember the fact that he was an over £10m player 12 months ago, so according to me you have to take them when they are bad and hopefully he will show his potential here.”
