Fulham midfielder Derek Boateng in Watford, Charlton talks to salvage 2014 World Cup hopes
Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng is having talks with Charlton and Watford over a loan move in a bid to get more first-team football to force his way into the Black Stars World Cup squad.
Boateng has only made two Premier League starts for Fulham this season and with just about six weeks before coach Kwesi Appiah names his provisional squad for the World Cup, Boateng wants a loan move to get some playing time.
He is fearful that his ambitions of making the Ghana World Cup squad are dwindling away by sitting on the Fulham bench as Ghana prepare for Brazil 2014.
Newspaper reports in England today indicate that Fulham are prepared to let 30 year-old Boateng leave and that, already, two clubs in the shape of Charlton Athletic and Watford have expressed an interest in taking the player.
Both clubs are keen on taking the Fulham midfielder Boateng on loan for the rest of the season.
The 30-year-old has featured just once since previous coach Rene Meulensteen took charge in December and that was in the FA Cup draw with Norwich.
Boateng is desperate to quit Craven Cottage to get regular first-team football in order to cement a place in Ghana’s World Cup squad.
Fulham bosses has sanctioned a deal for the African to join the Hornets for the rest of the campaign.
