Owner clears £200m Fulham debt burden
Fulham are clear of debt after owner Mohamed Al Fayed converted loans totalling more than £200m into shares in the club. The club's latest financial report included an operating profit of £1.2m.
Al Fayed said: "Fulham continues to make great strides and, following planning permission for the redevelopment of the Riverside Stand, we will continue to prosper and grow."
Emmanuel Frimpong, on loan from Arsenal, could make his debut against West Ham, whose manager, Sam Allardyce, admits there is "total confusion" over the future of midfielder Mohamed Diame.
