Martin Jol says that Fulham will not pay the £3m that Ajax are demanding for Cameroonian midfielder Eyong Enoh.

Fulham manager Martin Jol has conceded defeat in his efforts to sign Ajax defensive midfielder Eyong Enoh.

The 27-year-old Cameroon international spent the second half of the season on loan at Craven Cottage, making nine appearances for the club.

Jol was said to be keen on a permanent transfer, but he claims that the Cottagers are being priced out of a move.

"Eyong Enoh did a good job for us but the option to buy him was £3m, which is too much when he's not even playing at Ajax," Jol told reporters.

Enoh has made 149 appearances for Ajax since joining from Ajax Cape Town in 2008.
