Bullard Exit Talk Played Down

"Jimmy is trying to get a contract that suits him," Hodgson has said.

"He isn't sure we can provide that contract so we must be realistic, there are other clubs that can offer that and pay the transfer fee we think he's worth.

"We are waiting to see what happens as he has his own ambitions. He is sitting down with both his agent and our chief executive, Alistair Mackintosh, but I don't know if he has had an actual offer.

"I stick to my original statement that I would be happy if the January transfer window came and went without any transfer activity.

"Certainly no-one at Fulham has told him he can leave."
