Transfer news: Fulham looking to send Neil Etheridge on loan
Fulham boss Martin Jol believes Neil Etheridge's ongoing development would benefit from a loan switch.

The 23-year-old finds himself as third choice behind Maarten Stekelenburg and David Stockdale in the Cottagers' goalkeeping department.
He has been some way down the pecking ever since breaking into the senior set-up, with spells taken in at Charlton Athletic and Bristol Rovers as a result.
A stint in League Two last season saw him make 12 senior appearances and get a rare taste of competitive action.
The intention was for him to head out of Craven Cottage on a similar deal at the start of the current campaign, but an injury to Stekelenburg made a move impossible.
Etheridge has had to be patient, but the loan path has been cleared again and Jol admits he would be willing to listen to offers for the Philippines international.
Jol said in the Fulham Chronicle: "Neil is one of the keepers who I think should go on loan and get 50-75 games under his belt because he's talented.
"Etheridge hasn't got the experience yet. He's played one or two matches for us.
"He has never played in the Premier League and I think goalkeepers are living by experience."
