Fulham duo go on loan

Fulham have allowed defender Abdeslam Ouaddou and goalkeeper Martin Herrera to leave on season-long loan deals.

Ouaddou, who joined Fulham from Nancy for 2m in August 2001, will join French side Rennes, subject to a medical.

The Moroccan international made 26 appearances for the Cottagers in all competitions last season, mostly at right-back.

Herrera has returned to his native Argentina to play for Estudiantes de La Plata.

The keeper signed for Fulham from Spanish side Alaves in August 2002 and made only two first team appearances last season.

Fulham manager Chris Coleman said: "Abdes has made it clear that he's not a right-back and that he wants to play where he feels comfortable, which is at centre-half.

"But there's a lot of competition for places at centre-half now so we've let him go out on loan to Rennes who are a good club.

"He'll still have a year left on his contract when he comes back and a season away playing regularly will only make him a better player when he returns.

"Martin is another who naturally wants first team football, and with Maik and Edwin here, he knows he's not going to get that which is why we've let him go back to Argentina for a season."
