New Fulham gaffer Roy Hodgson, who has spent much of his time at Craven Cottage chasing Marlon King, looks set to concede defeat in this chase.

The former Inter Milan boss is reported to be on the verge of making a last ditch report for 11-goal King, a bid which won’t match Aidy’s ‘silly money’ valuation.

Nothing official ever came from their ‘improved’ bid which was believed to be around four and half million, plus a player.

If Marlon was complaining about the pressure on his shoulders before January, the pressure on it now will become unbearable and if the Horns don’t go up, will Marlon stick around to sign a new deal?
