Sheff Utd set to beat Leeds & Fulham to in-demand winger

Sky Sports reports that Sheffield United have agreed a fee of £300,000 with Hartlepool United to sign winger Nathan Thomas. The 22-year-old was one of the shining lights in what was ultimately a dreadful season for Hartlepool, who were relegated into the Vanarama National League.

The Northern Echo reports that Leeds United have also monitored the progress of the goalscoring wide man. Fulham are another side said to have rivalled Sheffield United for his signature. It would however appear that the player is destined for Bramall Lane in the very near future.

Thomas has been on the books at Victoria Park ever since making the move from Mansfield Town in January of last year. He made a decent impression last season, but ultimately found himself to be substituted on quite a regular basis. Although his side were ultimately relegated, he has been a big positive factor to come out of Hartlepool United this season. He helped himself to nine goals, including a brace earlier in the campaign in the 2-1 away success at Yeovil Town.

Many other Sky Bet Championship clubs are said to have paid a particularly keen interest in the forward, who is set to leave his current club. With relegation confirmed after Newport County’s last winner against Notts County, money is much tighter and a star asset such as Thomas could be sold to help raise much needed funds.

Fulham must make a move for this 15-goal Derby County ace, should Cairney opt to leave


It will take some time for Fulham to get over the disappointment of their play-off semi-final defeat to Reading, with Slavisa Jokanovic’s side falling short in their quest for Premier League football, despite defying the odds to finish inside the Sky Bet Championship’s top-six.

With just eight-fixtures of the season remaining, Fulham found themselves eight-points behind Leeds United, but a magnificent run of form saw the Cottagers finish the season five-points ahead of the Whites.

Key to that run of form, and Fulham’s impressive performances across the season, has been Tom Cairney, who has scored 13 goals for the Cottagers this campaign.

Cairney added 11 assists to his goal tally, and with Fulham’s failure to gain promotion, there is plenty of speculation surrounding the 26-year old’s future.

Should Cairney leave Craven Cottage, Fulham are likely to land a handsome transfer-fee and they must invest it wisely to replace their best player.

Derby County’s Tom Ince is a player that Jokanovic could look to lure to Craven Cottage, with the 25-year old one of the Championship’s most high-profile players.

Cairney and Ince play in different roles within their respective teams, so should Fulham make a move for the Derby man, he wouldn’t be seen as a direct replacement for Cairney.

However, Ince has 15 goals and six assists across all competitions this season, which shows he could replace Cairney’s creativity at Fulham, should the Scottish international opt for a move away.

Ince has been a shining light in a disappointing campaign for Derby, and the Rams would not let him go on the cheap, but with Fulham certain to land a multi-million pound deal from Cairney’s potential departure, he would be well within their price range.

Norwich City and Fulham both interested in Belgium based player, building blocks of transfer


 
Norwich City and Fulham are both keeping an eye on a player, or players, in Belgium. During the winter transfer window Fulham approached several players in Belgium football before finally signing Cyriac at the end of the window.

Fulham have been more active than Norwich in Belgium, bringing in several players over the past few years. The league is cheaper to recruit from than France’s Ligue 1, so there’s often a greater chance of a bargain.

Anderlecht Online report that both Fulham and Norwich will have an official watch the match between Charleroi and Anderlecht tonight, an important game in Belgium’s end of season championship play-offs.

The Belgian league splits in the second half of the season and the overall winner is decided by a series of play-offs.

There’s no indication who either Championship club have got their eye on, but both Fulham and Norwich will be setting the building blocks of summer transfers, and seem to have a Belgium based player on the agenda.

For Fulham, especially, that is really no surprise.

West Ham linked with move for Tom Cairney

West Ham, along with Newcastle and Southampton, have expressed an interest in Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney, according to a report from the Northern Echo.

Cairney has emerged as one of the best midfielders in the Championship and has subsequently attracted a lot of interest from some top flight clubs, with the Hammers the latest to be linked.

Although Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic hopes to keep his team in tact over the summer, there is a good chance that he could lose the Scottish star, as well as full-back Ryan Sessegnon, who is expected to join Liverpool.

From the middle of the park, the 26-year-old notched an impressive 12 goals throughout the course of the season, and also chipped in with a total of 11 assists.

Back in January, Fulham put a £20million asking price on Cairney to scare off Newcastle. With at least three teams interested in him, they’ll be hopeful of getting a fee close to that amount if they do decide to let him go.

Denis Odoi back to Belgium?



Denis Odoi could make his return to Belgium next season. A top 6 club would be interested in the Fulham player.
If Thomas Foket leaves, Ghent will have to find him a successor. His replacement could well be Denis Odoi according to Het Laatste Nieuws. The Belgian is under contract with Fulham until 2019. This season he has participated in 30 league games, scoring 2 goals and 2 assists.

Would be sad if this happened. Good full back who I doubt is on big wages. Him and Fredericks good enough to fill the Right Back spot next season.

This would be a real shame.  He's always struck me as a real professional whether in or out of the team.  One highlight of the season was his magical piece of skill against Newcastle.  Next season the team needs a new centre half and a new mobile striker.  If Cairney goes, and at 26 with his ability he ought to be playing at the top level, replacing him will be difficult.  Personally I would like to see LVC being given his chance.  A replacement for Aluko would be helpful too, preferably one who can finish, pass and head.

If Aluko could finish he would be playing at a top premiership club and cost about 30,000000 million!

30,000000 million? If that was the case I think we should give it serious consideration ;-)

Maybe not £30m, but he wouldn't be playing in the Championship.
