Chris Martin is fit and available for Fulham to face Barnsley after his two weeks where he has made himself unavailable.

The Derby loanee refused to line up for the Whites against Reading, Brighton and Cardiff because he was keen to return to the iPro Stadium.

Slavisa Jokanovic and Fulham were unwilling to sanction a return back to the Rams and Martin has, now, accepted that he will stay at Fulham for at least the rest of the season.

“He is fit and available for selection and we expect he will start scoring goals,” Jokanovic told GetWestLondon .

“It's good news for us. Chris started working with us and he's available and he's focused on Fulham.

“He is an important part of my team and all of us believe in the future, he is going to grow up his value and be an important player for us in this competition and in the future too.”

Martin and Jokanovic held talks in recent days and the Serbian has decided to let bygones be bygones and hopes supporters can welcome him back to the fold.

“We resolved this situation inside the dressing room and he is 100 per cent committed with us.

“We believe in him. The team believe in him. The club believe in him.

“I expect supporters are going to help us like always during my time as Fulham coach and push us hard and strong and be brave to do everything for three points.”

Martin could make his stay at Fulham permanent, if the Whites decide to activate a clause in the loan deal but Jokanovic is maintaining his opinion that he'd like a deal to be done.

He added: “This is a question for the club. The club know my opinion. I repeat many times what I think about Chris Martin.

“What is important for us is his commitment is full if he's ready for tomorrow's game and all of us expect he can be important and he can be a player that will make a difference for us.

Derby County manager Steve McClaren

Steve McClaren has also spoken out and accepted that he should shoulder the blame for Martin's strike action.

"None of this is Chrissy Martin's fault. It is me coming back (to Derby) and wanting him back," McClaren told the Derby Telegraph.

"I have put a bit of pressure on this club and a little bit of pressure on Chrissy. I suppose I have been the cause of it.

"Like I said when I first came in, to have had Chrissy Martin would have been great because I have worked with him.

"From day one I said if there is any possibility to bring him back... and basically the club is acting under that instruction."

Elsewhere, Jokanovic confirmed that Tomas Kalas, Scott Parker and Michael Madl are all fit to face Barnsley.
