Slavisa Jokanovic has recommended Fulham sign Chris Martin on a permanent deal from Derby.
The head coach complained bitterly during the summer transfer window that Whites data analyst Craig Kline ignored potential targets because they failed to tick enough boxes on what was thought to be required.
The decision does not rest with Jokanovic, but he believes that making the deal permanent is one that needs to be done.
He said: “It’s not in my hands. My opinion is we need to sign a permanent deal with him. This is my opinion. It’s a decision that is in the hands of the club.”
It has been famine or feast for Martin since joining the club, with all four of his goals coming in the space of four games in October.
