One of our ex players Andy Lonergan on the verge of joining  Liverpool.

Didn't he play a full pre-season with them? What happened with that?

Klopp initially signed him on a temporary deal and took him on the teams pre season tour as cover. But due to the injury to to their keeper Alisson, Adrian, a free from West Ham takes over, they are signing him to sit on the bench until Alisson is fit to return. Their 2nd choice keeper, Kelleher, is not 100% fit after a wrist injury and the next 2 keepers in line are 16 years and 18 years old, the 18 year old is just recovering from injury, that in a nutshell is why Lonergan is there.

Thanks for that - didn't know what his contract status was pre-season. Funny how these things work out. There's a lot of money to be made as a decent backup at the bigger clubs, especially if you help them meet their homegrown status.

Given Reid, Cavaleiro, Knockaert and Arter were all fantastic players in the Championship in recent years, I think the we can be forgiven for buying one player whose reputation isn't quite as good. Plus as far as I'm concerned we've signed Onomah for nothing because even £25m, with no extras, would have been a fantastic fee to get for Sessegnon. In any case I attach zero value to other clubs' fans comments about their departing players. I can still remember Wolves fans mocking us for signing Mcdonald shortly before we made him a linchpin in the best midfield in the division.

Onomah seems like a good utility homegrown bench player for the next decade, the 18th player in a upper table championship squad or the 25th player in a lower table premier league squad. If Parker can develop him into more than that it’s a bonus.

I am not at all bothered what fans of other clubs think about Josh Onomah. He should be another good addition to the squad for Fulham.
It’s a short cycle journey from Tottenham to Fulham, so no disruption or upheaval for him, and it’s a smart move and Scott would know enough about him, and he can only get better. I have no qualms about Fulham acquiring his signature. It’s a long hard season and his contribution will be valued.

yep, I can recall Cardiff fans being delighted when we swapped jazz Richard's for malone 🤣. And huddersfield town fans hated malone when they signed him. Everyone gets a clean slate at a new club, and you just have to wait and see how it pans out

Was this announced on the Offal?

http://sportwitness.co.uk/agency-confirm-fulham-player-signed-new-contract-duration-deal-still-unclear/

Earlier in May, the Cottagers owner Shahid Khan confirmed they had exercised the option to extend the contract of few players by a year and Denis Odoi’s name was included in the list.

Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws on Tuesday explains the 31-year-old has signed a new contract with the Championship side, but the length of the deal has not been disclosed.

There has been no mention of Odoi signing a new deal on Fulham’s social media channels or their official website.

However, this information was confirmed by Stirr Associates, the agency who represent the player.

On Monday, they congratulated their client on Twitter after he signed a ‘new contract’ with Scott Parker’s side.

It’s still not clear if the latest deal will keep Odoi at Craven Cottage until the end of the season or if this is another extension, which will keep him at the club beyond 2020.

And we have a decent past record where such players have stepped up and become firm fans' favourites
