Martin Jol is to hold talks with Fulham chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed in the next couple of weeks regarding spending plans for the summer, insisting it is important for the club to become more stable.
Jol has one year remaining on his contract and expects to remain in charge at Craven Cottage next season, but he first wants some assurances about the way Fulham plan to work in the future.
The Dutchman is keen for the club to make money available for transfers so that Fulham can push on next season and enjoy a more successful campaign.
He insists there has been no conflict with the board and is looking forward to discussing matters with Al-Fayed so that he is not frustrated in his ambitions.
"Every manager would like a few bob to spend - and we need a few bob," said Jol.
"Of course next week or the week after I will sit down with the chairman and ask him what he wants.
"But we haven't sat down before so there was no fire, maybe a little bit of smoke."
