Title: January Silly Season Transfer Thread 2019/20
Post by: Friendsoffulham on December 02, 2019, 08:25:38 PM
Fulham make initial approach for Leicester City defender

(https://the72.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/PSI_Luton_Town_v_Oxford_United_04MAY2019_NK_D5845-1024x683.jpg)

According to a report from Football Insider, Fulham have made an enquiry regarding the possibility of signing Leicester City defender James Justin on loan in the January transfer window.

Full-back James Justin joined Leicester City from Championship side Luton Town in the summer transfer window, joining in a £10 million deal from the Hatters. Since making the move, Justin has found first-team opportunities somewhat hard to come by at the King Power Stadium.

He has been forced to play second fiddle to Portuguese star Ricardo Pereira, who has been in electric form under Brendan Rodgers so far this season. The 21-year-old has made no Premier League appearances so far, with his only games coming in the EFL Cup against Luton Town and Burton Albion, netting once.

Now, it has been claimed that Fulham could look to offer him some more first-team football, with the Cottagers reportedly making an enquiry over a possible loan move for Justin ahead of the January transfer window.

Heading into the second half of the season, Fulham boss Scott Parker is keen to bolster his full-back options and Justin is one of the players on his radar. At his disposal at the moment, Scott Parker currently has the likes of Denis Odoi, Cyrus Christie and youngster Steven Sessegnon at right-back, with Joe Bryan the only left-back option.

Justin played as both a left-back and right-back for Luton Town in his 114 appearances for the club, featuring mainly on the left-hand side as the Hatters won promotion to the Championship earlier this year.

It will be interesting to see if Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City allow Justin to leave on loan to pick up some more minutes, or if they keep him as a back-up option to Ricardo Pereira.

Can’t see that happening, he is their only backup RB, big clubs are chasing two of their defenders and his versatility is great for them.

In terms of backups, Leciester's weakest positions is right back (i.e. James Justin), so if Leicester reinforces by adding reserve ready for Champions League next year then I can definitely see James Justin move to Fulham happening in certain conditions.

Fulham interested in Ipswich Town midfielder

According to a report from TWTD, Championship outfit Fulham have been keeping a close eye on Ipswich Town’s young midfielder Flynn Downes in the early stages of the season.

It has been reported by TWTD that ahead of the January transfer window, Ipswich Town midfielder Flynn Downes has been watched over by Championship promotion hopefuls Fulham. The Cottagers’ preparations for the January transfer window are well underway and with Chelsea defender Michael Hector already on his way to the club, Fulham could look to add some more in January.

So much more important that we ensure we don't lose players in January than that we bring in new players.

Teams like Villa, Newcastle, Watford and Newcastle or even Arsenal  and Leeds could well be thinking of Mitro and Cairney as players to give them a big boost.

Agree we need to hold on to key players, but if we are serious about promotion this year then it might be a good thing to bring in at least one prem standard player so he can bed in. One of our past problems has been too many late signings trying to all bed in together. You just can’t expect to do that in your first season back in the prem.

ABSOLUTELY——- if we are lucky enough to attain Premiership standard we will definitely need a least two more proven quality players (not from France). Must have enough going in to stay in!!

We need to start and close out games better, so I would strongly suggest buying an non-inverted (ie real) left winger that can defend a bit. Ivan Calverio can play on either side, but is better on the right where he should start most games, so Kamara and Knockaert can be super-subs which will end games better.

So, I assume when Mitrovoic or Odoi were playing in Belgium you wouldn’t have bought them.

To be fair, I thought Mitrovic was going to be a bit of a flop when we signed him.......We do get it wrong sometimes.

Fulham on Monday night scouting mission – Ricardo Horta looks a reasonable target

Although Braga aren’t normally a club who attract a lot of scouts from other countries, their game against Rio Ave brought several officials to their stadium last night.

One of the emissaries at the game works for Fulham, according to newspaper A Bola, although his target in this match isn’t reported.

Braga were the favourites for this clash and didn’t disappoint the home fans, winning the game 2-0, with goals scored by Paulinho and Ricardo Horta. But more players impressed for the home side, especially Pablo Santos, Nuno Sequeira and Fransérgio.

Fulham and Braga definitely have a good communication since they’ve worked on the transfer of Rui Fonte to the Portuguese side last summer.

The striker was brought on in the second half, and made an assist for the second goal, and there’s no suggestion Fulham were watching him, and no reason for them to do so.

The game also had scouts from Eintracht Frankfurt, Montpellier, Sampdoria, Atalanta, Bournemouth, Brighton and Genk.

Ricardo Horta looks like a reasonable target, although he extended his contract in September.

It would be interesting to know what is on Parker's mind as the January window approaches. Obviously he must be intent on keeping Mitro and Cairney but then:-
 Pick up a couple of young players with promise at  bargain prices who will provide cover for critical positions like left back.

Or
Be prepared to spend big money on a couple of proven players who can immediately come into our team and transform it from a possible top six outfit into an automatic promotion winning team.

Can understand the interest in Flynn Downes if Johansen is going to be out of action for a while having his knee repaired.  However, I still believe the flank partnerships suggest we may need to look for decent options on right and left either as cover or better fits.  Much depends upon how SP feels about his current squad options and who he thinks has done enough to prove themselves.  But we could do without injudicious purchases/loans please.

If we only end up with a playoff spot & gain promotion I wouldnt want us to face the farce of having our loans to go back & having to madly try to assemble a squad in the short time between the Final & the end of the window as happened before.

I would, FFP permitting, like to get some PL quality players in during the January window.

Spot on. But weirdly, even at £85m I would probably prefer to keep him at FFC.  He is a proven fit with our style and set up; I know 85 is a stack of money but there would still be no guarantee that new signings would fit in. We've seen it recently with the likes of Zambo and Seri, not having a dig at anyone but signings like that show how hard it is to spend money well.

Although not too renowned for defensive qualities, we already have a good left winger:
Knocky.
When he and Cav swop sides they both create far more chances.

All would cost plenty of £££ and sadly our budget is very tight to FFP and we will 100% not be spending big until we sell big - i.e. once Mitro is sold as he most assuredly will be once we fail to get promoted this season as our manager isn't up to it.

Realism based on FFP I'm afraid and our manager being utterly unsuited to getting us up. Maybe optimism will prevail if we get a manager who will get the best out of the squad we have.

Sadly they want him out as he's been as crap for them as he was for us … the effect on FFP at selling at a sizeable loss against his book value is we actually damage our financial clout. His contract and sizeable wage is strung out of the length of a longish contract. Our only chance is to loan him to another club - probably a French one our best option as he did well in that league previously (and hopefully may again) and hope we can get a big percentage of our money back in the summer.

Hector didn't sign in the last window as Sessegnon deal hadnt gone through. Hector was only 5 ir 6 mil. Our up front ££ for Elliot isnt huge. There isnt a ton of cash waiting to be spent.

Hector £6-8m
Arter £1-2m loan fee
Reid £10-11m
Reed £1m loan fee
Knockaert £3-4m loan fee
Cavaleiro £3-4m loan fee

But of course the way it works is these fees are accounted for over several years and the damage this year is us still accounting for Seri, Anguissa et al

But of course the way it works is these fees are accounted for over several years and the damage this year is us still accounting for Seri, Anguissa et al

Who on earth would agree 10-11mil for Reid?!

We've had our pants down there.
both reid/ and reed were loans with bobby apprantley having some clause that we buy him for 10 ish at end of season

I keep hoping we get linked with some of the following, Eze (QPR) Watkins (Brentford) Grosicki (Hull) Bowen (Hull)
All players that have got a rising stock, any one of those four would do, though I appreciate none of them are the defenders we need.

All would cost plenty of £££ and sadly our budget is very tight to FFP and we will 100% not be spending big until we sell big - i.e. once Mitro is sold as he most assuredly will be once we fail to get promoted this season as our manager isn't up to it.

Didn't we sell big when Sessegnon went to Spurs ? And what about Elliott to Liverpool, that's over £30 million for those two.

Elliot is via tribunal. No idea when that decision is due, but historically tribunal money isn't very much.

With regards to Sess, it would depend on how the deal is structured. It might be £25m over 6 years or something. We don't know.

Fulham Linked With The January Acquisition Of A Winger

With Fulham sitting, as I type, in fourth place in the Championship table, hopes of a quick return to the Premier League are gathering momentum.

In a matter of days, the January transfer window will open and it could prove to be a vital period for the club.

Decisions have to be made as to whether there is a necessity, and the funds are available, to bring some fresh talent to Craven Cottage to give our promotion push some added impetus.

Yesterday, lurking in the pages of The Daily Mail was the inference that Fulham may well be interested in bringing in a young winger, on loan.

The winger in question is Jack Clarke, a 19-year-old who is on the books of Tottenham Hotspur but who is currently on loan at Leeds United.

Clarke joined Tottenham back in the summer but was loaned back to Leeds to further his ongoing development.

But Clarke hasn’t been able to get the amount of first-team action Tottenham would like and he could be recalled.

Fulham, having sold Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham back in the summer, could be the next stop-off point for the teenager although we should point out that our London rivals, Brentford, are also said, by our referenced source, to be interested.

Here at Vital Fulham we’ll keep our eyes open for any further development and report back as deemed necessary.

Hell no.  I wouldn't start him over any of our top 4 midfielders.   I don't rate Harrison Reed as a CDM but i'd have him start over Seri.



Back on topic...

I know Wigan isn't a good side right now, but I'd definitely try and steal Antonee Robinson from Wigan.   I've seen him in a few games for the USA and I like his potential.    imo he's at least equal to Joe Bryan skill wise (and better than MLM as a left back) and keeping pressure on Joe Bryan for that starting LB spot is important.

In answer to your second question, in view of that he signed for Spurs, it is reasonable to presume that his aim is to become good enough to play for them. Sitting it out at Elland Road is doing nothing to further his cause.

Cameron Carter-Vickers is being recalled by Spurs from Stoke and they are looking for another Championship club where he will play more in January. He can play fullback or center half, and has looked good playing for the US. Asking price to buy is only 4 million. Could be worth a look.

I like him...but I'm not sure he'd start over Michael Hector or Tim Ream.   Also, if he were used at the CDM spot...is he much better than Harrison?

If he came in I'd consider it a positive though.

Why isn't he playing more for Stoke?  (always the question)

Report: Everton make enquiry for midfielder Jean-Michael Seri

Everton have reportedly made contact about Fulham midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, who is currently out on loan at Turkish club Galatasaray.

The Ivory Coast international left Craven Cottage in the summer on a season-long loan to join Galatasaray.

According to Foot Mercato, both Everton and Monaco have started discussions with the 28-year-old’s representatives about a potential move in January.

The report explains they have enquired about his future and it’s believed that Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti was already eyeing him when he Napoli boss.

It’s unclear on if Seri’s loan deal could be ripped up midway through the season, but it looks like he’s in demand ahead of the January transfer window.

Seri is a tenacious central midfielder full of energy and also has an eye for goal when he drives forward.

TBR’s View:

It would be a smart move for Ancelotti to strengthen his midfield at Goodison Park in the January window, as it seems a little lightweight at the minute and a fresh body should help the squad.

Seri is an intriguing target that is building his reputation back up in Turkey with Galatasaray and has played Champions League football with them this season.

He was an exciting midfielder that was the total package when he was previously at Lille, but his spell in England so far saw him flop with Fulham and suffer a relegation from the Premier League.

There would definitely be a risk behind bringing him to Merseyside, but Ancelotti should be backed to sign the players he wants.

Fulham are trying to convince Ali Gueddar (Guingamp) to join them

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D-GlqczWkAICUX4.jpg)

EA Guingamp’s 21-year-old attacking midfielder Ali Gueddar wishes to leave the club as soon as possible, according to our colleagues at RMC.

Having signed a professional contract with EAG just six months ago, he has not made a single appearance in a match-day squad under boss Sylvain Didot in Ligue 2 and has a difficult relationship with his board.

The young Frenchman would like to exit the club next month, even though his current deal expires in 6 months (it does however include an option in it for his deal to be extended by another 2 years).

Scouts for Fulham appeared specifically to watch him just before the winter break. The London club has since accelerated their interest by enquiring about the player’s appetite for a move and presenting their intended project for him, which includes an initial run in their U23s set-up.

He also has interest from Spain, but that remains a less concrete at this stage.

“Fulham want him” – Manager claims Championship side want his protégé

Fulham are keen on Esteghlal forward Medhi Ghaedi, according to the club’s former manager Andrea Stramaccioni.

20-year-old Ghaedi, a forward who can play on either wing but is currently operating in a central role, has clearly shown enough to impress the Championship side.

They are currently fifth in the table, nine points outside of the top two but firmly in line for a play-off place under Scott Parker’s leadership.

Additions may arrive in the January transfer window to help with a push for a top-six finish, and according to Stramaccioni, Ghaedi is one they are looking at.

The Italian boss has just returned from six months in charge of Eseghlal after a disagreement over the transfer of his salary brought a premature end to his spell at the club.

Speaking to Corriere Dello Sport, he was discussing his time at the Iranian club and his most significant achievement, Medhi Ghaedi.

“One of my greatest satisfactions is having contributed to the growth of Mehdi Ghaedi,” he told the newspaper.

“He is a twenty-year-old boy, last year he played only four games. He was the left-winger, I changed his role, convincing him to make the second striker.

“It was not easy: he’s a niche player. The captain came to me to say: mister, leave it alone.

“Instead I insisted, thinking of players of his size like Papu Gomez, Di Natale or Giovinco.

“If they see the goal they become devastating.

“Now he is the top scorer of the championship and Fulham want him.”

He was good enough gfor Leeds before they sold him to Spurs and good enough for Spurs to spend 10m on, just looks like Leeds have brought in more experienced players and hes dropped down the pecking order, Marco Bielsa, the Leeds boss, has now spoken out on this. “In this moment, the wingers I am focusing on are Costa, Hernandez and Harrison.

Drinkwater. According to rumours if he only did what his name suggests then he would be fitter and playing more often.

I saw Drinkwater play for Burnley and in that form he was,  that would NOT help us......at all!
When fit, Arter will lead our team.

Dwight Gayle apparently not in Newcastle squad today due to negotiating with another club about possible transfer this month?
I wonder who that team might be considering we have been linked heavily with him in the past?
No doubting his ability at championship level but awful injury record.

All we need are defenders. Another CB & a couple of good FB´s. No loans, only players that want to play for the Club & not just for the money.

Why would a player signed on loan with a club option to be made permanent, be any more or less playing for money than a permanent signing?

I also don't think we need a bunch of defenders, but if we could get a fullback with PL potential in, then I'd be happy. The only thing I believe we need otherwise is a good DM, unless they believe Kmac can be revived.

Very underwhelmed by the names mentioned like Drinkwater who seem to have lost whatever he had. Now is not the time for a player to come in to rediscover himself. It would be one thing if he had been injured, but he has been generally healthy for the last couple of seasons without playing games which means several coaches has deemed him not good enough.

In the summer some interesting names were mentioned at least briefly. Victor Wanyama of Spurs for example I believe was mentioned (probably wishful thinking). After recovering from injury he was a regular towards the last part of last season, and started games both in the league and the CL.

Seem to be massively out of favour at Spurs now, so maybe, just maybe he could be pursuaded to join another London club for 6 months with a view to permanent conditional by promotion. Would sort out any DM worries.

Amartey of Leicester is another that would fill multiple needs as he has mostly played DM, but in the PL has been used primarily as a right back (was a regular to start last season before injury ruled him out). Don't know why he hasn't played so far this season, so may still have issues because of the injury. If he is just not fancied for a place in one of Englands best teams, then I would go for him. Watched him a lot when he played in Sweden and some in Denmark, and back then he was a class above (although that doesn't say much).

Two athletic, strong, tall players with defensive qualities that are also used to playing in England and are of a good age so that they would benefit us massively also in case of promotion.

There are of course two problems, with the first being that it is unlikely that we could get them, and the second that we already have filled our loan quota for the season (so that someone needs to be returned/made permanent/dropped from the 18).

why on earth are we bidding for more wingers?

Maybe we want to send Knocky back to free up a loan space for let’s say Drinkwater or another DMC or defender?

We have zero wingers signed for next season (not including part-time wingers Reid and Kamara), we have options to buy Knockaert and Cav, plus may extend Kebano and Torres. We should get another winger at the end of the winter transfer window as an option and we buy the two best options of the three wingers.

Does anyone know if we can buy any of our loanees now to free up a spot? We surely know we want Reed and Reid of the 5 at the least!

I think the loan quote issue doesn't matter too much to get Wanyama on-loan. We can only start with five loan players (out of Wanyama, Reed, Arter, Reid, Knockaert and Cav), but I think we can leave Reed out of the matchday 18, whenever Wanyama, Arter, Reid, Knockaert and Cav are all commanding a place.

I really think we need a specialized defensive midfield that is an automatic starter like Wanyama or Amartey, in order than the defense looks better. Against Luton, out defenders failed to pass the ball to the DM, a better DM will make them look better. As for existing players, I think KMac and Reed are more bench players, while Arter is a more a traditional central midfielder or second defensive midfielder.

You have to be realistic when it comes to a January window.

We shouldn't have to look at midfielders, as we already have Reed, Arter, McDonald, Johansen, Onomah, Cairney and Reid. Add O'Riley to that too, and we have ample cover for every possible midfield combination.

The only position I think it would be good to add cover is a backup LB to push Bryan, and a natural striker to cover Mitro.

In current state, and last few years nothing. But, we have a good track record of taking in players when they're low on confidence, have personal problems and manage to get them back on track so it wouldn't be a terrible transfer. A gamble for sure and I still think wages hold us back but if we could get him anywhere near those Leicester days, it would be quite the coup.

For what its worth, I don't think it'll happen and I doubt Parker is really interested at this stage.

This! Leaving aside the fact he's barely kicked a ball in two years and the rumoured issues/fitness issues, the one place we absolutely DO NOT need any reinforcements is central midfield. In Championship terms, we have an absolute wealth of talent. I can think of at least three positions that could use upgrades or additions before we even look at CM/DM!

Other clubs who are interested in him have been told they will have to pay his full £110,000 week if they want him.

With that in mind and completely turning a blind eye to FFP the last thing we need is a player who has "nothing to prove" and is clearly content earning his pay packet.

If Sean Dyche cant get anything out of him and DD would rather get behind the wheel drunk, I definitely don't want him at the Cottage.

These signings / loans literally never work out for any club ever yet fans still fall into the "revival of career" trap. Someone who is on that much money a week doesn't need a revival.

I've never really bought into this - he was still flying at international level and known as a fantastic player. He didn't fit Benitez's system which relies on a very mobile, pacey forward working often in isolation. Any 'anger issues' were likely a result of frustration with this (and he was what, 22?).

There is a case for Danny Murphy and possibly Zamora but, to be honest, it was a long time ago and there have been far more examples (such is the law of averages with these things) where it hasn't worked out. Markovic being a very recent (and possibly more accurate comparison giving recent playing time, etc) example.

True. with Mitro though, we definitely completely rebuilt his reputation/perception. Everyone lauds him as a professional now rather than some angry red card waiting to happen.

I wouldn't put Markovic in that bracket really, he's not really done anything to warrant being troubled, a club just way overpaid for him. Not really his fault. But I do agree, there's probably as many guys we tried and didn't get back on track as we did, probably more. We're just a good, family club and I think it helps a lot of players. Might be wrong, but if Drinkwater was to ever get his career back on track and defeat his demons, a club like Fulham would be his best chance.

regardless, won't happen. I think he'll pick up high value cheques for the remainder of his career and be like Rodwell. Hopefully I'm wrong though but he isn't worth anywhere near the 110k mark someone mentioned above. He wasn't even at his height at leicester imo.

You guys proposing Danny Drinkwater are aware that he in the past year has been picking up DUI's as well as getting injured in nightclubs by getting drunk and trying to take other guys girlfriends home and getting beaten up as a consequence?

He isn't a professional and has alcohol and attitude problems. All the best to him, we all have/had friends like that or have been like that ourselves, I'm not trying to judge his character I'm sure he just needs to figure himself out, I don't like to think of people as inherent pricks, but I think it makes no sense from a business stand point to employ such a fella.

Of course, there is a chance Cairney leaves, my guess such a decision would only be made if we have given up on promotion this season and concentrating on getting funds, players and teamwork for next season. Unfortuantely, if Seri is returned that could book a loss on the balance sheet and if avoiding FFP punishment becomes Fulham's first priority then Cairney is the obvious choice as he has no book value. More than any other player selling Cairney would get us out of any large FFP issues instantly, Betts is another more likely sale that could get out of small FFP problems.

Alternatively, if Seri and Anguissa hold their value according to the director of football then no FFP problems will occur. Ideally, we need a DOF of football that can honestly say that Seri is still a top top player (keeping Seri's book value around £15m), such DOFs are hard to find but fortunately, we may have such a DOF so avoid the player evaluation and resultant FFP issues that would require selling Cairney. Sacking the DOF could lead to selling Cairney or Mitro, because a new DOF may have to devalue Seri's book value and balance the books.

Contrary to some of my reasoning for not wanting Drinkwater, I would actually take Antonio Valencia on till end of season with option for another year. Obviously would depend on wage demands but feel like he would be a good temporary solution where we can re evaluate in Summer and sign someone depending on which league we are in next season.

Club make offer for Fulham player – Claim agreement has been found

According to Sabah, Lyon have made an offer for Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri, who’s currently on loan at Galatasaray.

The Ivorian midfielder hasn’t had the best of spells with Galatasaray this season and there were recent reports in the Turkish press that he could leave the Super Lig club in this transfer window.

Sabah report Lyon have reached an agreement with Fulham over a permanent transfer for Seri, however, Galatasaray would need to agree to this. There no is indication what the Ligue 1 side have offered for the central midfielder.

The Turkish club’s manager Fatih Terim reportedly wants to give the 28 year old another chance as he believes he could become an important player once they complete all their transfers in this window.

Seri joined Fulham during the 2108 summer window, but signed for Gala on loan a few months ago after the west London side were relegated to the Championship.

He has made 15 appearances for Istanbul club in all competitions this season.

No doubt we are overloaded with players to fill the three midfield positions. Would make sense to move one or two on and replace with a top left back. Please not Cairney.

Anyone can have Seri for a pack of smokes.   I have no idea why so many gave him such a long rope.   He didn't fit the position he was played in, and he wasn't as good as Tom Cairney as a #10.

There are very good reasons for why we shouldn't just give Seri away. If you have missed them, although they have been explained about a thousand times now by various members on here, a hint is FFP. Thus, the discussion is not about how good he is/isn't or was/wasn't, and neither if he would fit into our team.

From Twitter
Fulham were credited with an interest in Youssouf Sabaly in January 2019, but they failed to get the deal over the line.
Foot Mercato now claims Bordeaux will offload a few players in the winter market and the 26-year-old is included in the list. The Cottagers once again get a mention and it’s claimed Fulham’s €12m offer last year came in late, which is why the French club couldn’t respond.

According to the report, the fullback is once again offered to clubs in England and this includes the Championship side.

Exclusive: Fulham set sights on signing Leicester 25yo, Rodgers willing to let go
Leicester City midfielder Daniel Amartey is a target for Fulham during this month’s transfer window, Football Insider understands.

The 25-year-old is a long way down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium and is unlikely to break into Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying side anytime soon.

A source at Fulham has told Football Insider that the club have held a long-term interest in Amartey and, after failing to sign him over the summer, are looking at making a move for him again this month.

[img=600]https://www.footballinsider247.com/static/uploads/1/2020/01/Vardy-Amartey.jpg[/img]

It is understood Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers could decide to let Amartey to leave on loan so that he can get some valuable first-team football under his belt following his long spell out of action.

The Ghana international has not played a competitive senior match since breaking his ankle against West Ham 15 months ago.

Amartey is equally adept at playing in midfield as well as centre-back and his versatility makes him an attractive proposition to Fulham.

(https://www.footballinsider247.com/static/uploads/1/2020/01/Amartey.jpg)

Cottagers boss Scott Parker is keen to add to his squad before the close of the transfer window as he looks to boost their promotion bid and Amartey’s experience would make him a valuable addition to his plans at Craven Cottage.

Amartey was a member of Leicester’s Premier League title-winning side of the 2015/16 season, playing the five games necessary for a winner’s medal, and has over 60 appearances during his four years with the Foxes

Could be a good signing.

Taylor-Crossdale, 20, moved to Craven Cottage on a two-year deal having been snapped up from neighbours Chelsea last summer.

Now manager Scott Parker wants the striker to get regular game time in the Championship to continue his development in the hope he will be ready to step up to the first team at Fulham next season.

Wigan are hoping the London-born forward, who came through in the same Chelsea age group as Reece James, Rhian Brewster and Marc Guehi, can provide the goals to help move them away from relegation trouble in the Championship.

Andrija Zivkovic is a little upgrade on Knockaert, at least in terms of assists. In Andrija Zivkovic last two full games for Serbia, he has provided Mitrovoic two assists, while Knockaert has provide Mitrovoic two all season. If Andrija Zivkovic joins Fulham, the Serbian National Coach will be telling Mitrovic the best he can do for his country is to stay and build that partnership. And, Mitrovic maybe happy to be only a Fulham, Championship and Serbian legend.

Or that we just aren't being linked to anyone.
Generally happy with the squad but think most would be happy to he linked with more quality at RB, I wouldn't be against another CB signing, a lb to compete with Bryan and CF backup for Mitro.

Just don't think were in the market for all of that. Also of we see Kebano leave, I'd be happy to see a new winger in on loan to keep pushing knock to play to his full capacity.

I'd be pretty disappointed if we didnt improve RB though, most of us were saying that during the summer and with Sess not stepping up yet, I think it's time to do some business there

Thought I'd take a peek at the Huddersfield board about the Kongolo rumours...

Aside from the digs at London ('not my capital anymore' a particular favourite') and other about our club, the views seem to say pretty similar things:

- Decent when partnered well
- Doesn't want to be at Town, concerns about attitude
- Still relatively young, some reckon if it were permanent we'd be looking at £10m+ (though we all like to exaggerate)
- If he sorts his attitude out could be phenomenal, if not will get lazier and be terrible

Hmmm poor attitude and lazy, doesn’t want to be there.
Sounds right up our alley, may even break our transfer record.
On the other hand under the right coach and ethos and conditions he may be different, but it has to be at a give away fee, as he sounds a busted flush where he current is. But then again is he carrying too match baggage. Then again players can react differently to different managers and different clubs.

Another mention of the potential Kongolo interest.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7874789/Celtic-plan-watch-Stoke-striker-Tyrese-Campbell-ahead-possible-move.html

Celtic are expected to watch Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell on Saturday ahead of a potential move.

The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and the Parkhead club are interested in him.

Meanwhile, Fulham have expressed an interest in Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo, who can play at centre-back and left-back.

Huddersfield added to their squad already this window by signing Emile Smith Rowe on loan from Arsenal.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Middlesbrough have asked about St Gallen goalkeeper Dejan Stojanovic, 26. St Gallen want Liverpool's Shamal George as cover.

And Cardiff City have had a £2.3million bid rejected for Wigan Athletic’s Wales international striker Kieffer Moore.

Not to mention he played the majority of Premier League matches in their relegation season. We've seen what that can do to players. Him joining our side, a group trying to prove they can get back to the Prem - not to mention Parker, could be just what he needs.

He was very highly rated at Feyenoord and Monaco spent a lot of money for him, so I was a bit surprised to see him go to Huddersfield.

He is a LCB that can play as LB as well. He played most games at LB for Huddersfield this year (and against us), as they had no other left back - they have been using a 20-year-old kid for the last 10 games or so. Huddersfield fans like him, but think he can't be bothered any more and wants to leave (as St Andrews White wrote earlier). I think this is the main reason that he has not been selected since their loss to Bristol City at the end of November (plus an injury he got at that game).

This,

I gather from Huddersfield fans that he was a bit of a fan favourite the year they got relegated. Many felt he was one of the only higher class players they had.
Most now begrudgingly feeling that he doesn't want to be at Huddersfield (or maybe it's be 'in' Huddersfield - would you if you'd played in Monace and Feyenoord!)
He's tall and athletic with an ability to drift by a player. Loves a lunging tackle as he has long legs so made a few Hollywood challenges last year for them. Some of their fans have the hump with him because they felt he was sulking about playing in the championship. So that's the risk, but perhaps if he was playing in London for a "bigger" club in his mind than Huddersfield and a chance of promotion he might refind his form. Seems when he's up for it he's quality but he's just not on it this year. Could be one of those where we can sign a quality player when he's cooled off a little and he goes on to be great for us.

Kongolo- from the above posts it sounds risky to me - is he safer than Odoi at left back. Suspect if we sign him he will be on the bench for a good while.

He hasn't played for Huddersfield since the end of November.

Honestly never heard of the guy before he was mentioned on this forum two days ago, do you know much about him?

He was very highly rated at Feyenoord and Monaco spent a lot of money for him, so I was a bit surprised to see him go to Huddersfield.

He is a LCB that can play as LB as well. He played most games at LB for Huddersfield this year (and against us), as they had no other left back - they have been using a 20-year-old kid for the last 10 games or so. Huddersfield fans like him, but think he can't be bothered any more and wants to leave (as St Andrews White wrote earlier). I think this is the main reason that he has not been selected since their loss to Bristol City at the end of November (plus an injury he got at that game).


This,

I gather from Huddersfield fans that he was a bit of a fan favourite the year they got relegated. Many felt he was one of the only higher class players they had.
Most now begrudgingly feeling that he doesn't want to be at Huddersfield (or maybe it's be 'in' Huddersfield - would you if you'd played in Monace and Feyenoord!)
He's tall and athletic with an ability to drift by a player. Loves a lunging tackle as he has long legs so made a few Hollywood challenges last year for them. Some of their fans have the hump with him because they felt he was sulking about playing in the championship. So that's the risk, but perhaps if he was playing in London for a "bigger" club in his mind than Huddersfield and a chance of promotion he might refind his form. Seems when he's up for it he's quality but he's just not on it this year. Could be one of those where we can sign a quality player when he's cooled off a little and he goes on to be great for us. OR we could find ourselves with ha player who gives up when the going get's tough. I guess we'll see if we get him at all!

Suppose when you look at it hes been in a team that been losing for nearly 2 years, probably doesn't know how to handle it

If we make a move for him, I think he will probably replace Ream as the LCB.

Albian Ajeti is open to a loan from west Spain, he could tear up the championship

The Swiss frontman has struggled for both minutes and form since his £8m move from Basel in the summer having failed to find the net and having made only two starts, both of them in the Carabao Cup.

West Ham are thought to be in the market for a new striker in January as David Moyes looks about bolstering his squad and has been linked with a swoop for Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa and AC Milan frontman Krzysztof Piatek, who is also of interest to Spurs.

Kongolo cannot even make the bench after Huddersfield conceded 5 goals against Stoke and 2 goals against Barnsley. The coaches task is to avoid going to League One, I assume he knows more about Kongolo than we do and wants to sell him to us to free some money up for the relegation struggle. Any money he gets will probably go buy a new left back (as that position has the worst statistics) to replace the one ahead of Kongolo. RISKY sounds like an understatement either their coach is an idiot or we are for considering him.

He's basically given up on playing for Huddersfield. He was one of their better players last season, but I can't blame him for not wanting to stick around in a struggling Huddersfield side.

Someone on the Fulham Independent Forum, reckons Che Adams will be joining us on loan from Southampton until the summer. I'll take this with a pinch of salt, as most stuff on there is 99.9% bull, but, if this is true, then there'll be a load of really pee'd off Leeds fans, as they're 100% certain he's going to them!

Looking into it further, Southampton want him back in the summer, whereas Leeds want an option to buy along with the loan, so could this sway it for us, if we're just looking for the loan?

Interesting...

Great let's sign this guy on a five-year deal, plus we know when he wants to leave he'll make sure his values fails so the other team can pick him up cheap, exactly the kind of attitude we should be bringing into our dressing room and make sure we never sell a player at a profit again.

We're critical of some Ligue 1 players whose performance dropped when stepping up to the premier league and some unfairly accused those players of not trying (which evidence can neither confirm or deny). This guy's performance crashed stepping down to an easier league, a guy that completes 78% of passes in the premier league should be able to match that in the league below or at least its pretty good evidence that he might not be trying.

Danny Cowley on Kongolo back in November:
"Terence played left-back in the Sheffield Wednesday game and did ok, then he found it more difficult in the West Brom game and, again, more difficult against Preston" in his honest post-match comments, as reported by ​Examiner Live.

He added: "To be fair to Terence, he is playing out of position and he is just coming back from injury as well in the Preston game. He didn't look right or feel right. He is a defender and left footed, but he is not a left-back."

Bit of an oversimplification just to assume Kongolo can't be bothered with the Championship IMO.

I should imagine he (a bit like Seri) came here expecting to be playing relatively successful, expansive football against Man City, Liverpool et al, but ended up in one of the worst ever PL teams, losing 3 out of every 4 games and getting humiliated regularly. It hasn't improved much for them despite dropping down, so I should imagine the atmosphere there is pretty toxic. Now the fans are on his back, and he's playing in a division where rough, negative tactics are often allowed to neutralise the most talented players because of the crap refereeing. All this coupled with moving from Monaco to Huddersfield.

Maybe it has all just caught up with lad and he's depressed.

A fresh start in London, a more positive dressing room and a clean slate with new fans could be just what he needs.

This,
Couldn't agree more, it's rarely as simple as a blanket statement like - he don't wanna be in the champ. His current state is likely to be an accumulation of events and situations, like many players before him, a move might help he rediscover his form and state of mind. We all know a fresh start can make a big difference in our own lives so why not him too.

I'm not desperate for his signature, but my dutch buddy seems to think he was very well liked at Feyenoord too so he must have some quality in the locker and perhaps we're the team to help him find it again - ala Johanson and Mitro.

Like the sound of Kongolo.   Rather than drawing a parallel with players disgruntled with the Championship or seeking a less physical league, I’d reflect back on Sascha Reither, a defender we signed who had been good enough to play for a great national team and who took to the Cottage like a duck to water.  This fellow is younger and if he’s up for playing over here, could be a considerable asset.

Not my money though.

Have not gone back through to see if this had been mentioned.  If so sorry. 

FootMercato report Lyon have made two formal offers for Seri. The first one was worth €11m, and the second came in a little higher at €12m. Both those approaches have been rejected by Fulham.

The Championship side are looking for €18m, which is said to be the clause Gala hold to make the move permanent. Should Lyon and Fulham reach a deal, and presumably Gala fail to match it, then the loan will be cut short.

Perhaps I'm a bit over expectant. If, in fact, he has opted out of playing his best because his teams sucks, than I'd say he's a quitter and I don't want any such person near our side. He is a professional and at this point his goal should be to make people say that Huddersfield sucks, except for their keeper.
The best players are self driven.

Plenty of people saying that a striker should be our priority this month, sorry but I don't buy it, we MUST, buy two decent full backs , otherwise we are going to remain vulnerable every time the opposition go forward.

Can only assume you’ve got problems with your memory then because in the last few years we’ve had Kay Voser and Jazz Richards at right back and I can wholeheartedly say that they are miles worse than Christie.


Whatever has happened to jazz, no idea where he is now?

Cardiff, back up to Lee Peltier.

Fulham are closing on on a deal to free-agent goalkeeper Jordan Archer, a source close to the player has confirmed to Football League World Chief Editor Sam Rourke.

The 26-year-old was most recently at Karl Robinson’s Oxford United in League One, as he provided cover for Simon Eastwood over the festive period, making six appearances for the U’s.


The Walthamstow-born goalkeeper is now a free-agent and Championship promotion chasers Fulham are set to seal an agreement for the player, with it increasingly likely that Marcus Bettinelli will depart Craven Cottage, as per the aforementioned source.

Archer’s most fruitful spell came during his stint at Millwall, where he recorded 144 appearances at the New Den from 2015 until 2019.

Dwight Gayle being touted again,Newcastle offering free loan to Championship sides WBA,Forest,Fulham,on the deal that 20 million paid if promoted.
Didn't he do his hamstring in on Saturday?
Also the loan club pay his £60,000 /week wages for the loan period.
Kamara sounds a better bet.

Even as a bench warmer I don’t think we should get him. Why not stick the the other young keeper on the bench, surely can’t be worse than him.

I'd be surprised if he came to us as we won't guarantee him playing time. Good player, actually think Arsenal are being a bit silly here- he's got pretty good playing time and now he'll go off elsewhere and have to fit in again.

It seems to me that all of the current rumours are for potential bench warmers, we have enough cover already. If we sign any player they need to be clearly better than existing layers and ready to jump straight into a starting place.

I tend to agree. That said if Betts is off we will need a back up keeper. Can’t really see any other reason that Archer would be linked.

As FFP desires, benching Fabri and MLM, means we will end up selling profitable players Betts and Bryan. The best way to ensure we keep a player is to bench him, we aren’t financial stable in terms of what we can spend at the moment and the clock is counting down for Parker to get us up before the best of the team is sold off.

They won the league, and will play in the CL-qualifiers. And play in Stockholm. And is very well run the last 5-10 years.

I don’t think that club have the money Fulham asks for or neither will agree on other/further terms Fulham ask for. For the lad, yes I wish him all the best.

It would be great to see him playing for the new US gaffer in the future.

Lol I did a post on Facebook about how I was a lil underwhelmed how Jordan Archer was going to be our first January signing. The amount of people who said "what about Cavaleiro" "what about Hector" get a life, why would I count either of those two? One already here and playing for us, and the other we all knew was signing on the 1st of Jan. Two good signings I'm very happy with but they are summer signings really.

The right manager would/ could have won the league with our squad. Saying that I love Scotty P and I do not think he's done badly enough to get the chop. So, if we are going to sign players it has to be defence for me. LB - is Joe Bryan going? If so we need a replacement. LCB - are Ream and/or Mawson up to it? If not we need a replacement. RB - it doesn't matter who occasionally plays there and has the odd good game WE NEED A NEW RB. Midfield and up front I think is pretty good tbh, if those players aren't performing then that's the management/ coaching issue because they're better than any other team in this league has. Mitro is out for 2-4 weeks. Personally I'm not into the idea of using up a loan slot or even paying for some rubbish forward e.g. Glen Murray. I'd rather play Bobby Reid up top with Cav and Tony Knockers either side. Bobbs scored 20+ goals for Bristol city playing up front in the champ, lets give him a go for the next 4 games with Kamara coming off the bench.

Thing is mate, I'm so fickle. If I had written that after the reading game I would have left the love scotty part out. Fact is we all do love him, we just don't necessarily think he's the right person to be in charge at this point. We could have really done with an experienced championship manager this season. But it is what it is. I can't see him getting the chop as long as we remain in playoff positions.

Not that I had a profile back then, but I seem to remember our CBs being Burn and Hutchinson and everyone quite on board with the idea of signing Dunk. I certainly wanted him to come to fulham.

On Sky Sports transfer centre:

FULHAM CLOSE TO KONGOLO SIGNING

Fulham are in advanced negotiations to sign Dutch international defender Terence Kongolo from Huddersfield Town.

Former Town manager David Wagner signed the 25-year from Monaco on a permanent deal in June 2018 for a then club record fee believed to be around £18m.

Kongolo has fallen out of favour under Danny Cowley and had not featured since November, despite being under contract until 2022.

Kongolo, who can play at left back or centre back, won the Eredivisie league title with Feyenoord in 2017.

If we want a LCB that proved they are too good for this league before June 2018 and has struggled after that, may I suggest Ream, Mawson or MLM because we already own them.

As has been mentioned a number of times. The kid was signed for 18million for a reason. Played extremely well at feyenoord where the fans loved him, was also good enough to play for Monaco before that.
Went to Huddersfield and was of their only top quality players last year. Reportedly fell out with the Cowley brothers (which I gather isn't unsurprising for them) as he wasnt enjoying his time there and the general feeling from my understanding is they think he clearly has premier league talent, but that he doesn't want to be at the club anymore along with a couple of others.

So we'd be getting a player who's played plenty of quality football, for a better fee than we might have normally due to his current form for a strugggling side,but who could have huge upside... IF he wants to play here. None of us know the exact story of why Kongolo is in the situation he is, but what's clear is there is a talented player there who needs a new start. That's worked for us before, (see as recently as Mitro and Johanson) so its not as simple as - he can't even get into their team hows he good enough for us.

Jury's out on this one, but if he's up for it it could actually work out much better than many are expecting

He's not playing because Cowley only wanted players that would commit their future to Huddersfield. No other reason. If he was staying he would start every game
It is five years since a young Virgil van Dijk was omitted from Holland’s 2014 World Cup squad in favour of an even younger Kongolo. It is fair to say one Dutchman has achieved more than another since then. Hopefully Kongolo can get his career back on track wtih Fulham as he definitely has the ability and was one of Huddersfields best players at Prem level

Bit on the net saying Luca De La Torre In talks with a Swedish side.

Can he speak Sweedish then?

Most Swedish speaks better English than most Americans, that's not a problem. The problem is the choice of club. Bad club that..

They won the league, and will play in the CL-qualifiers. And play in Stockholm. And is very well run the last 5-10 years.

I don’t think that club have the money Fulham asks for or neither will agree on other/further terms Fulham ask for. For the lad, yes I wish him all the best.

It would be great to see him playing for the new US gaffer in the future.

Why would Fulham ask for anything else than possibly a symbolic fee for a player that has not been able to even almost break into the team and has 6 months left on his contract? What other teams would pay any significant amount for him at this stage instead of just signing him for free for next season (the Swedish league starts in the spring, so they would want him now)? And why would Djurgården not be willing to agree to some future terms such as sell on clauses?

We were never going to get any decent fee for Luca unless we resign him and give him at least a fair shot at proving himself in the first team. Since we don't seem willing to do that, the club may just wish him well, thank him for all his efforts, and not step in the way of an opportunity for the lad. The Swedish league has actually become quite a decent window for better leagues, and he would have every chance of proving himself.

Fulham Linked With The January Acquisition Of A Winger

(https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcTGnxH8aqmEM0JmORHmn3ZFFUYzkqPgJngD4ffeqrQkKVo0TiyC)

With Fulham sitting, as I type, in fourth place in the Championship table, hopes of a quick return to the Premier League are gathering momentum.

In a matter of days, the January transfer window will open and it could prove to be a vital period for the club.

Decisions have to be made as to whether there is a necessity, and the funds are available, to bring some fresh talent to Craven Cottage to give our promotion push some added impetus.

Yesterday, lurking in the pages of The Daily Mail was the inference that Fulham may well be interested in bringing in a young winger, on loan.

The winger in question is Jack Clarke, a 19-year-old who is on the books of Tottenham Hotspur but who is currently on loan at Leeds United.

Clarke joined Tottenham back in the summer but was loaned back to Leeds to further his ongoing development.

But Clarke hasn’t been able to get the amount of first-team action Tottenham would like and he could be recalled.

Fulham, having sold Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham back in the summer, could be the next stop-off point for the teenager although we should point out that our London rivals, Brentford, are also said, by our referenced source, to be interested.

Here at Vital Fulham we’ll keep our eyes open for any further development and report back as deemed necessary.

https://fulham.vitalfootball.co.uk/fulham-linked-with-the-january-acquisition-of-a-winger/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

Two simple questions.

1.  Why is he not playing for Leeds?
2.  Why would he leave Leeds to go to a team lower in the table?


A further simple question is that if he is not good enough for Leeds why is he good enough for us?
This is not a criticism as I know nothing about him, although I imagine SP does.

Was it all of three game he played for us. This kid is 19 and a midfielder, not really sure we are short in that department.
Unless we were buying him as he is potentially a prospect but a loan would be a waste

We had Ayite, Kebano, Piazon, Ojo, Mollo and Sess ahead of Graham when he was loaned. Pretty much the same situation imo.

It doesn't make any sense unless it is a permanent transfer to me, but I never understood loaning Graham either.

All this talk of Left backs and Centre backs. But where is the most needed improvement of all? A right back?!

Reed can play there if required and he may be the best RB in our books 🤔

Harrison Reed is a midfielder. I’m not aware if he’s ever played right back. If he has fair enough but if not we’d be better recruiting a specialist right back with potential for the Prem. No more square pegs in round holes please. It’s not the way forward IMO.

Allegedly we’re interested in Isaac Mbenza (pacy striker) from Huddersfield according to a L’Equipe journo.

One of the others that the Cowleys want to get rid of, like Kongolo.

I think Mbenza is more of a winger than striker, he is another one who was decent for Huddersfield in the prem. Very pacey ... but went down and refused to play for them so questions could be asked about his attitude ... a bit worse than Kongolo but no doubt would be available for cheap as they look to offload (they paid 11m for him)

Also put an instagram up when we signed Kongolo with the caption 'finally' and 'desire them' - doubt that endeared him to Huddersfield fans

Udders fan view of Mbenza🤪

Either the scouting team that brought him in have new jobs playing on FIFA at Fulham or Bournemouth. I wouldn’t mind but they don’t even have the excuse of not seeing him play live - surely they popped into the JS at some point when he played - well stood offside on the grass - and realised how he is one of the worst footballers and biggest waste of money ever to pull on a Town shirt!

If we're looking at a Huddersfid striker, i'd of prefer Mounie. Still think in the right team he'd score goals.

Just adding a bit more to this - another glowing reference from a Huddersfield fan:

"This can’t be right. Is Eddie Howe wanting to lose his job and do Fulham really want to get promoted? How on earth can you be interested in signing a player who hasn’t kicked a ball in months? And one of the worst ever to pull on a blue and white shirt and with an even worse attitude. I just don’t believe we could be this lucky. Offloading Kongolo and Diakhaby is one thing but this would far, far, eclipse either of those departures."

I hope Tony Khan only buys players with good statistics, I wouldn’t be considering paying more than £2-5m for centre forwards that like Mounie have got 14 goals in 5 half seasons or like Mbenza with 1 goal in 3 half seasons. And, from what i know they want a lot more than £5m.

It’s a buyers market, and if the owners sons offers more than the £2.5m you suggest, then it’s another example of misjudging market value and wasting his fathers hard earned income.

We are all biting at the bait because we have McDonald, Arter, Reed, Onamah and Johansen equally competing
for the two midfield places alongside Cairney . Difficult to decide which one we could best afford to lose.

So it's most likely swap between StefJo and Gaetan Bong as we are looking for fullbacks. No way they would get rid of Montoya.

Or maybe StefJo for Solly March who has been out of favor there.

Just my thoughts but it's obvious it's StefJo from our side.

Agree, he started the season slowly but he's back to his best of late. I'd sooner we returned Arter than sold Johansen, Johansen offers more. I'd keep all of those players though.

Was a good player for Lille and been decent for Brighton by all accounts, like another very good Malian we once had there are parallels to Diarra although I wouldn’t say he was quite as strong as him. Has potential to be a regular PL starter though for sure, I guess swapping him for Stef means we get someone in their early 20’s with even better resale value. I have a sneaky feeling Stef may be behind Onomah in the pecking order now so might be the logic behind it if we got rid of him?

Does this swap show we are looking towards lowering the age of the squad. Kongolo is younger than Ream and Odoi etc . Are we already planning for next season.

Would be a really weird move by Brighton if it's a straight swap as they paid £15m for Bissouma a year ago, and like us with Anguissa they could probably recoup that if they were to sell him. Johansen might go for a third of that, max?

That being said I'm not so sure I would take the deal as Stef is proven here and could still be a huge player in our promotion hunt, while Bissouma would be more of a wild card.

Agree with both of these points entirely. Would seem a strange move from them with regards to value. The ideal scenario would be to do it at the end of the season so we can keep SJ here for the push! I think he's been great in recent weeks. I'd be reluctant to upset the applecart with too many changes tbh. On the pitch and in the dressing room.

That said, a straight swap is, from a money point of view, potentially a good deal...

Interesting, if true seems a stupid move from Brighton as I would say Bissouma is worth much more than Johansen.

I would say accept but takes time for player to settle etc so im not sure.. thanks for posting

Would be shocked with the Bissouma deal, are we talking about a loan swap or perm? On a perm it's an absolute no brainer for me, like StefJo but B's ceiling is considerably higher, sell-on value etc.

Loan swap, nah I'd stick with Stef as he's getting into decent form

So sky are saying we have had a loan offer for Ben Gibson rejected bu burnley. He’s a left sided center back. That would have been him ream, mawson and Kongolo all vying for that one spot. Seems like a little over kill to me

completely fabricated story...never been in for him althought there is a possibility of a straight swap deal on offer from Brighton for a midfielder of ours

If this is Bissouma for Johansen, we'd be mad not to try and get this done.

If it was a loan swap I'd be inclined to say I'd prefer to keep Johansen as he knows our system and can do a job when needed.

objectively, i agree. doesnt seem much point in a temp swap. would take a couple of months for both to acclimatise to their new surroundings. both would have to get used to a new league also. not just a new team and new tactics. i would be inclined to agree that it needs to be permanent and not a temp. maybe this is what the discussions are going over at the moment...

Four Champ clubs battle to sign Tottenham's Carter-Vickers

Cameron Carter-Vickers is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur on loan before the transfer window shuts, with a host of Championship clubs in talks to take him, TEAMtalk can reveal.

Carter-Vickers spent the opening half of the season on loan at Stoke City, but he was recalled by Spurs at the start of the month after falling out of favour under new boss Michael O’Neill.

We’ve been told a number of foreign clubs have shown an interest in the 22-year-old who was born in Southend but has eight caps for the United States.

However, Carter-Vickers wants to stay in England and has tasked his agent with securing him a move to another club.

And TEAMtalk understands that Fulham, Derby, Huddersfield and Middlesbrough have asked if they can take the 22-year-old on loan for the rest of the season, with the defender a long way down Jose Mourinho’s pecking order at Tottenham.

Any move for Carter-Vickers, who has also had loan spells at Swansea, Sheffield United and Ipswich, could also come with an option to make the move permanent.

He's been on loan at Wycombe before, his career ended when he got fat and comfortable in life, he's far more interested in vintage cars now than he is in football, if he's good enough for The Championship how come none of the 24 clubs were interested in acquiring his service ?

It's just a paper rumour, but even if it's fundamentally true, what difference does it make?

Arguably any player has an option to leave if we don't go up. If they say they don't want to be here anymore and won't give 100%, would we really force them to stay and reject reasonable offers from. Other clubs?

Mitrovic in particular is someone who's capable of playing at a much better level than the Championship so personally I've always doubted that he'll stay beyond next summer if we don't go up.

If this rumour about a contractual clause is true, it only makes a difference if it has a low trigger price, eg of it says we have to accept any offers above £15m.

I cannot see Mitrovic staying, unless we have a better chance of going up than this season. Next season, parachute payments decrease so we will lose players, and the teams going down this year will be strong next year. Parker will have less expensive players and will have to convince Mitovoic he will do better this season.

This Club has been over-reliant on Tony Khan bringing inexpensive players and once Mitro realizes that Fulham's era of buying players is over, then he will have to assess whether Parker is the kind of manager that can get out of the Championship with the third or fourth-best team on paper (like Brentford might do).

There was a news paper report of this the other day, that report also said they can wait to the summer and get him for 25 million if we dont go up.

If we do go up i guess 40 mill becomes 50 or 60 mil

Yep, looks decent from his time at RB, not sure what happened at Monaco to lead to this point.

Anyway lets hope he struggles to adapt to the championship and fails to have an impact for them.

12 in 42 for a bundesliga team in the championship.. if managed properly could be perfectly good for them.

Any rumours?!?! Only 3 days to go and no rumours at all....
Assuming the made the loan permanent to allow another loan to come in they let us wait.

Also any update on the striker situation - if Mitro is out and AK injures it would be good to have some sort of cover (regardless as you never know how Mitro comes back)

Ade Akinfenwa can run yoga classes no one would argue, plus we could play Ade Akinfenwa and Alexander Mitrovoic in the big/small striker combination.

6) Fulham – £24m
Signed: Ivan Cavaleiro (Wolves), Bobby Reid (Cardiff), Michael Hector (Chelsea),  Jordan Archer (Oxford), Terence Kongolo (Huddersfield).
The only English representatives on this list have been reinforcing their squad for another late surge to the promotion line. The Cottagers took up their option to sign Cavaleiro permanently for an undisclosed fee and they didn’t specify how much they paid for Reid or Hector either but some have guessed at £10million and £8million respectively. Archer was a free signing while Kongolo joined on loan.

2 million behind Real Madrid this window!

CALCIOMERCATO ROMA CHRISTIE – Secondo quanto emerso nelle ultime ore, Alessandro Florenzi potrebbe presto fare le valigie e raggiungere la Spagna per indossare la maglia del Valencia. La Roma sarebbe già al lavoro per trovare un sostituto per il capitano giallorosso. Secondo quanto riportato dal giornalista sportivo, Nicolò Schira, Petrachi avrebbe già contattato il Fulham per Cyrus Christie. Il difensore classe ’92 potrebbe quindi prendere il suo posto.

ROME CHRISTIE MARKET - According to what has emerged in the last few hours, Alessandro Florenzi could soon pack his bags and reach Spain to wear the Valencia shirt. Roma would already be working to find a replacement for the Giallorossi captain. According to what reported by the sports journalist, Nicolò Schira, Petrachi has already contacted Fulham for Cyrus Christie. The 1992 defender could therefore take his place.

And that's with their maths assuming we paid £6m for Cavaleiro and Kongolo combined. More like double that IMO, which would take us up to 4th!

Like this move for Jota, think it would be a good signing. He's done well against us in the past. Strong on the ball, and has some good creative play in him.

Or more fancifully that we paid £8m for Hector in the last year of his contract who's been on loan for almost all of his career.
Or that we paid for Kongolo.
However if you were to look at £24m for those 5 players, it would represent a good bit of value and of course our spend in Summer was £0. Where did that put us on the league table?

Always rated Jota personally. Technically very good has ability to unlock defences and a knack of scoring goals at this level.
Were we not in for him before Harry lured him to Birmingham. Was he not going to be the replacement for Aluko.

i do have a few bits of information around the current squad and incoming deals but i cant say names at the moment. i know that sounds like BS but i have been asked not to mention a couple of bits.
there was one deal that is now dead for someone from Holland yesterday. flight from NL to Farnborough was booked by FFC but there was a change in circumstance so its on the backburner for now.
there is also a real strange one were looking at, a forward, that when i heard, i instantly didnt want. it will be a strange one if it happens.

the only name i will confirm is the Christie rumour has a lot of substance to it...its not a made up story. they legitimately have enquired for him but there are 2 transfers that need to happen before for it to come off....another strange one to say the least

like i said before in other posts, i cant reveal all i know for obvious reasons so dont all jump on me for being vague....and feel free not to take my word on any of it

Too late now to sign the striker we need for the Huddersfield match and hopefully in ten days time either Kamara or Mitro will be ready for an appearance against Blackburn.

No point therefore in wasting time and money in one of our deadline bargain basement signings.

16 Championship games left after Huddersfield, we will be very unfortunate for both Kamara and Mitro to get injured again at the same time . More likely that any new player will be injury prone and will be out for a month or two soon after signing.

Have heard various sums mentioned for the Cav permanent transfer.
Some could be the initial fee others  could include future add ons.
Although, very alarmingly on Sky they have listed the fee as £15m.
Surely even we could not be so crazy as to agree that.

and yet we would all demand 40 mil plus for a 10 goal a season (in prem) mitro. He’s a decent player who is young enough for a resale value so even if it were 15, it would still be a good signing imo

£15m is about right for Cavaleiro IMO

He's at that level where he can either be an outstanding Championship players or step up and do a decent job for a bottom half PL team

No, it's not a bargain but certainly not a rip off either

Would likely be a loan (Villa now have a big squad).

If played like Knocky as a right inverted winger the opposition would likely close down his left foot the same.

Knockaert has good statistics for about 65 mins and then starts to dip, so we need a right winger coming off the bench. Kamara can do that job, but he needs to focus 100% on being our backup centre forward and resting Mitrovic as early in each match as possible. Kebano can do that job but is carrying injuries, Bobby Reid can also do that job but is needed in midfield with injuries there too.

Jota as backup RW will directly strengthen the availability of backups for RW and indirectly strengthen the availability of backups for CF, LW and AM, which may indirectly indirectly improve backups for LB, DM and CM too. A better right-winger than Torres like Jota would strengthen the squad considerably. Adding Jota means we would have two players in each position and with 21 players worth more than Harrison Reed no other club has such depth.

If we pay Cameron Carter-Vickers £20,000 per week to build the Riverside Stand it doesn't count to FFP and surely he can play for us on his days off.
But then all the other builders would want £20,000 per week except the plumbers because they wouldn’t want to take a pay cut😂😂😂😂😂

CHARLTON WARN FULHAM OVER DOUGHTY

Charlton have told Fulham that Alfie Doughty is not for sale.

The Whites made an enquiry about the 20-year-old midfielder, who has 18 months left on his contract.

Remember thinking that he was absolutely rapid when we played them.

I hadn't seen Sabaly had been linked again? Would he come whilst we are in Championship? If so, and he and Jota come in, I think we can all agree we have had a superb winter window (and the summer just gone). He would be the 'ready to step up to PL' RB we need.

Would be delighted with those two before the window 'slams shut' tomorrow.

Bordeaux is trying to sell players so Sabaly is on the markert and he was prepared to come on a permanent deal when we were going to drop down into the championship. I like that he can play left-back almost as well as right back as it gives Fulham more options, especially in terms of player rotation. Those two deals will be enough, provided injuried players are fit soon and the midfield chemistry starts to click. I think our midfield three is a big problem, but think that might be a lack of cohesion rather than not good enough players.

Agreed on both counts. The midfield is a difficult one as we definitely have the players but cohesion, as you say, has been the problem. Problems have been a). there's been a lot of injuries and players in and out and b). if we asked everyone to pick their midfield three, I would guess we would get every possible combination!

For example, if all on form, I'd be tempted to go:

K-Mac
Arter Cairney (Arter playing as an 8).

But, that said, I'd be loathe to lose the mobility of Reed and Onomah's physicality. A good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless!

At 17 he will have nothing but 3 years on the bench to look forward to at Fulham. We will consider him too young to risk.

I think there was more at play there than just the midfield (the total lack of intelligent movement up front and so on) but point taken. In fact it proves my point above that we would all choose different variations of the three. Hell, I'd probably choose a different three on a different day...

Young Raith Rovers striker Kieron Bowie has secured a six-figure move to Fulham, Courier Sport can confirm.

But the centre-forward will stay at Stark’s Park club for the rest of the season.

It is understood that the transfer fee for the 17-year-old, who has scored 10 goals for Rovers this campaign, is around £150,000.

Bowie will further his football education in Kirkcaldy alongside Steven MacLean before he leaves for Craven Cottage.

BREAKING: Raith Rovers striker Kieron Bowie joins Fulham for £150,000

(https://wpcluster.dctdigital.com/thecourier/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2020/01/bowie-e1580409976870-552x372.jpg)

Young Raith Rovers striker Kieron Bowie has secured a six-figure move to Fulham, Courier Sport can confirm.

But the centre-forward will stay at Stark’s Park club for the rest of the season.

It is understood that the transfer fee for the 17-year-old, who has scored 10 goals for Rovers this campaign, is around £150,000.

Bowie will further his football education in Kirkcaldy alongside Steven MacLean before he leaves for Craven Cottage.

Veteran MacLean has been snapped up after falling out of Hearts manager Daniel Stendel’s plans.

The deal to keep Bowie at Raith is a delayed transfer, rather than a loan.

The squad we have is good enough provided Mitro, Kamara, Knockaert and Kebano return from injury within one or two games, plus a fully fit in three to five games; else we need to give up on automatic promotion or get Jota. Even if we are just going for playoffs, we will at least get a loan in but maybe just a true championship squad player to cover Kebano and Kamara (eg Woodrows standard).

We can cover the full backs but we really need a Glenn Murray to get us over the line. For me AK is not a top class finisher. Too much hangs on Mitro. Look, for example at Brentford's spread of scorers. Watkins is top man but has great support

Oh I agree! I’m really hoping for Jota to be honest as it may take the above a few games to get up to speed even once they’re back. Sabaly too would be superb.

Just meant, it’s been a good window already. I wouldn’t be up in arms and moaning if the deals feel through and no one came in. Here’s hoping!

He may not be a top class finisher (kind of subjective I guess), but he has scored a goal every 209 minutes on the pitch in his Fulham career, even though he often has played as a winger. That would translate to almost a 20 goal season if he played 46 full games. Not too shabby in my opinion.

For comparison, Mitrovic has scored every 179 minutes.

If we only look at the Championship (which may be more relevant) Kamara has a very decent record of a goal every 182 minutes, which would put him at at roughly a 23 goal pace if he played a full season.

Again, for comparison, Mitrovic has a goal every 123 minutes for Fulham in the Championship (falls to a goal every 142 minutes if we count his Newcastle days), which is of course remarkably good and maybe not a standard for which we should hold our back up striker that often plays on the wing instead.

Lastly, if I read the available stats correctly, Kamara has scored a goal every 118 minutes when playing as a centre forward for Fulham in the Championship. That is actually superior to Mitrovic in terms on goals mer minutes, albeit from a smaller sample size.

So the stats point to Kamara being more than good enough as a back up striker in the current situation (he is likely good enough as a starter in almost every other Championship team). Stats of course don't paint a complete picture, but it can be helpful in mitigating potential bias in opinions.

We should loan a player that gets at least 400 minutes for the rest of the season, I don’t see any centre forward getting more than a game or two plus a few subs. I think Jota will play 400 minutes; the next four games until Knockaert is full fit and 25 minutes every game after that.

Christian Atsu discussing a last minute loan move as the Newcastle United winger attracts interest from Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Fulham over a short term deal
Title: Re: January Silly Season Transfer Thread 2019/20
Post by: Statto on January 31, 2020, 10:45:25 AM
Would everyone be happy with the window if no signings were made today?

Yes. If no one of any note leaves either.

That said, I don’t think it’ll happen and we will surely get a loan in, otherwise why pay out early for Bobby Reid if not to free up the loan space?

We can cover the full backs but we really need a Glenn Murray to get us over the line. For me AK is not a top class finisher. Too much hangs on Mitro. Look, for example at Brentford's spread of scorers. Watkins is top man but has great support

He may not be a top class finisher (kind of subjective I guess), but he has scored a goal every 209 minutes on the pitch in his Fulham career, even though he often has played as a winger. That would translate to almost a 20 goal season if he played 46 full games. Not too shabby in my opinion.

For comparison, Mitrovic has scored every 179 minutes.

If we only look at the Championship (which may be more relevant) Kamara has a very decent record of a goal every 182 minutes, which would put him at at roughly a 23 goal pace if he played a full season.

Again, for comparison, Mitrovic has a goal every 123 minutes for Fulham in the Championship (falls to a goal every 142 minutes if we count his Newcastle days), which is of course remarkably good and maybe not a standard for which we should hold our back up striker that often plays on the wing instead.

Lastly, if I read the available stats correctly, Kamara has scored a goal every 118 minutes when playing as a centre forward for Fulham in the Championship. That is actually superior to Mitrovic in terms on goals mer minutes, albeit from a smaller sample size.

So the stats point to Kamara being more than good enough as a back up striker in the current situation (he is likely good enough as a starter in almost every other Championship team). Stats of course don't paint a complete picture, but it can be helpful in mitigating potential bias in opinions.

We really don't want to see any of those bargain basement last minute half fit loan signings coming in today. All that we really need is a proven goalscorer to take the weight of Mitro.  A good goalscorer would have to be better than Kamara and would cost a lot of money and it is not going to happen so we had best settle for what we have.

Competion for places on the bench is already strong so no more benchwarmers please.

Why do we need a centre back? We have 5 already + Odoi. Also, do you mean striker as in a short term replacement for Mitro? Because Kamara is reportedly almost back...

Not really, we need another full back, plus a striker minimum, we need a bigger squad if we are to make a serious challenge for automatic spot. Believe me there will injuries loss of form and the odd suspension most likely. We have to be prepared for any eventuality if this club wants to give itself the best chance of promotion.

Now I think this is a deal that we should be looking at if the rumours are true!
“Tottenham are willing to allow Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama to leave the club - but only if their £8m asking price is met. Celtic are interested in the 28-year-old”

Really rate him even when at Southampton, would definitely be an upgrade for us ahead of McDonald and Reid IMO. Only mentioned them 2 as they seem to be the preferred defensive mids.

So right, we really can't expect to have more than two good players for each position, Kamara and Mitro should be  sufficient for the lone striker.

Friday Mnop is a great player indeed! Equally at home as a defensive back up striker or an indifferent right back, but also capable at filling in at left centre back on a moments notice for the greater good of the team. Once almost scored two goals in an FA cup game even though he started as a defensive number 10. Unfortunately he missed both penalties, but on the bright side he was never sent off. In that game that is, but otherwise he's a red card waiting to happen due to his fair-ish but tough style. This will be entertaining if TK gets the deal over the line, and also surely means that Bryan, Christie and Mitro are on their way.

This will be entertaining if TK gets the deal over the line, and also surely means that Bryan, Christie and Mitro are on their way.

Is there a Q for him?

Colin’s on Sky Sports Transfer deadline show and is proving worth watching - he’s providing more insight than everyone else put together. Also, his views on Jack Grealish, whilst not insightful in the sense he thinks what we all think, were hilariously candid. 

We haven’t had a mention, in or out.

We got good defensive additions to the team.

Ready for the second half of the season run.   

Hector + Kongolo + healthy players = auto promotion.

And the media have been shown to be mostly clueless.

Not a bad window when all is said and done. Appreciate Hector was done a while ago but With Kongolo coming in we have strengthened both centre back slots which was the absolute priority. The permanent signings of Cav and Bobby Reid too. We just need the injured forward players back and we’re good to go. Keep the faith. COYW.

The standout player in the Championship this season. Good player and a goal scorer too. Probably joined the wrong team though. West Ham are a basket case.

Possibly paper talk and we were never in for him, where would he fit in? Instead of Mitro?,  Cairney?, Onomah? Any of the wide players?

Think maybe they linked us as they did a few years ago when he went to Brum?

That is a harsh statement although I would agree that Cairney is not looking as good as he was the season before last. I suspect that he has suffered both from injuries and from being used differently by managers.
He was at his best in a deep position in that engine room with Johansen and McDonald.
We need him back fully fit and at his best for the next17 critical matches, although right now he has to demonstrate that he is of more use in midfield than the likes of Arter, Onamah and Reed. There is strong competition for his place.

The way he is playing (to about  up to 65% of potential) and that he has not finished or started games suggests he is struggling with an injury.
We have other good m/fieldrs IF fully fit let them take the pitch and give 100%.

Cairney was certainly better today particularly 1st half, and scored with HIS RIGHT FOOT.
Although again was subbed in 2nd half when we were struggling so could well have a niggle.
