Last updated : 15 January 2006 By Mo Sultan

Fulham are after Hearts on-loan striker Rudi Skacel, according to his agent.

Skacel is expected to stay in in Edinburgh until the end of the season as there is no get-out clause in his contract.

Also, Hearts have first refusal on a permanent deal should Marseilles (his parent club) agree to sell.

A £1m transfer fee has been mooted, and Skacel's agent Pavel Zika believes Fulham may out-trump Hearts.

Zika told the Daily Record: ''Fulham are interested in Rudi, but negotiations will not start before the end of the season.''
