MARTIN Jol says Fulham plan to renew contract talks with Andy Johnson soon in a bid to persuade the striker to stay at Craven Cottage.
The former England frontman has so far stalled on signing the two-year extension on the table, putting west London rivals QPR on red alert.
Johnson has declared his intentions to extend his time in SW6, although the new deal is understood to be on reduced wages to the four-year contract he agreed when he signed for the Whites in 2008.
But Jol is still hopeful the 30-year-old, who has already fired nine goals in all competitions this season, will commit his future to the club.
He said: “We will have to sit down again and hopefully we can come to a solution.
“We've made him and offer and he's thinking about it. Our financial people are coming back from a break and will start talking to him in the next couple of weeks.”
