MARTIN Jol wants new signing Ashkan Dejagah to battle it out with Damien Duff for Fulham's ring-wing spot.
The deadline-day arrival from Wolfsburg was ineligible for Saturday's defeat at West Ham, but could be in contention for the clash against West Brom in a fortnight's time.
Duff has had an impressive start to the season after his decision to retire from international football, with two goals in the opening four games.
However, boss Jol hopes Dejagah can fight it out with the Irishman for a place in the starting XI.
He said: “I played against him and have followed him for the past four or five years. He can play in a 4-4-2 as a real winger.
“He's quick and has got a good cross so that's good for us to have two players who can compete for a spot.”
