Martin Jol may attempt to bring out-of-favour Aston Villa left-back Stephen Warnock to Fulham in January, according to a report.

Fulham manager Martin Jol is considering a bid for Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock, according to a report.

The experienced full-back is out of contract in the summer and has not been training with the first-team squad since returning from his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers.

Villa manager Paul Lambert seems to be willing to let the 31-year-old leave in January as he continues to trust younger players in Villa's battle against relegation.

According to the Daily Mail, Jol is debating a move for the England international in order to provide competition for John Arne Riise on the left side of the Fulham defence.

If Warnock does make the switch to Craven Cottage, then youngster Matthew Briggs is likely to leave on loan in order to gain more regular football.
