A knee injury sustained by Damien Duff three weeks ago will likely cause the veteran midfielder to miss the rest of the season for Fulham.
Current Cottagers boss Felix Magath admitted Duff's injury is significant enough to warrant surgery, and although his services are desperately needed to help Fulham avoid relegation, Magath admits he does not expect the Irishman to be available again this season. Fernando Amorebieta and Scott Parker have been ruled out for the Cottagers strip to Cardiff City this weekend with muscle and knee injuries respectively. Mar 7 - 10:35 AM

Fulham are apparently having a hard time getting Wolves to agree to their evaluation of right midfielder/winger Bakary Sako.

The 25 year-old Frenchman is exactly the type of signing that Fulham need to begin preparing for the day that Damien Duff is not available - and longtime followers of Duff's career know that an injury could come at any time. It isn't clear what the difference in valuation is but Fulham need this sort of signing and throwing a few extra pounds at the deal seems like good insurance against Duff's injury history and an aging squad.

Wolves are proving to be tough negotiators as Fulham attempt to seal a deal for winger Bakary Sako.

Whether it is 25 year-old Frenchman Sako or someone else, Fulham must get younger all over the pitch and likely don't have a ton of money to do so. With Damien Duff aging, this would be an ideal season to bring in a player like Sako to learn as an understudy and assume Duff's place in the starting line-up over the course of the season.
