Revealed: Derby, Fulham & Sheffield United battle Aston Villa to sign available PL defender



Sheffield United, Fulham and Derby have joined Aston Villa in the race for free agent defender Todd Kane, Football Insider understands.

Football Insider revealed earlier this week that Dean Smith’s side are in the market to land the 25-year-old, whose contract at Chelsea expires this month.

The Premier League club were keen to keep hold of Kane, but they missed the deadline to take up their option in his contract allowing him to leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer.

Kane enjoyed a successful season on loan at Hull, making 41 appearances in all competitions and chipping in with three goals for the Tigers.

A source with knowledge of the 25-year-old’s situation has told Football Insider that his impressive form for the Championship club has brought him on the radar of Villa, Sheffield United, Fulham and Derby as they look to strengthen their squads ahead of next season.

Sheffield United could be in need of a new right-back should they lose Celtic target George Baldock this summer, while Aston Villa are also in the market for full-back reinforcements after releasing Alan Hutton, Ritchie de Laet and Micah Richards at the end of the season.

Fulham are keen to strengthen their defensive options next season as they prepare for life back in the Championship.

Derby boss Frank Lampard is an admirer of Kane having played with him during his time at Chelsea and he fits the bill for them as he is a free agent, with finances set to be tight for the Rams this summer.

Leeds need funds to bolster their own promotion push and are facing bids from Aston Villa for Kalvin Phillips and Tottenham for Jack Clarke.

Meanwhile, Fulham still face a fight keeping hold of Ryan Sessegnon.

The young left winger is wanted by Tottenham and Sessegnon has reportedly told the Championship side that he wants the move.

16-goal Middlesbrough man interesting Fulham as Parker eyes Mitrovic replacements



By Lee Connor 15/06/2019

Middlesbrough striker Britt Assombalonga is interesting Fulham as they seek potential replacements for Aleksandar Mitrovic.

According to the Daily Star, the Boro star is one of a number of players on the radar of manager Scott Parker as he looks to find a replacement for Serbian striker Mitrovic, who is reportedly on the verge of signing a deal with Spanish side Real Betis.

Assombalonga fired in 16 goals last season for Boro despite a poor season on the whole which saw the club miss out on the top six and manager Tony Pulis lose his job before the end of the season.

The 26-year-old was a £15m signing for Middlesbrough just a few seasons ago, when they raided Nottingham Forest for the former Peterborough man in the hope of him being the answer to their goalscoring issues.

However, despite a decent campaign last year, things have not quite gone as expected overall for Assombalonga, who has struggled at times with a few injuries and failed to consistently reproduce the type of performances which saw him so highly sought after at the City Ground.

Middlesbrough are in the midst of a transition period at the moment, with new manager Jonathan Woodgate tasked with overseeing a summer of change at the club, while Fulham manager Scott Parker is looking to rebuild following relegation last term.

The Verdict

This would be a fine replacement signing for Fulham if they did manage to pull it off, and I don’t think we’ve quite seen the best of Assombalonga just yet.

Fulham will know they need to replace Mitrovic’s goals if he does go, and Assombalonga would be ideal.

Goals, pace and plenty to prove mean that the former Forest man will be a more or less guarantee of goals if he does move to the Cottage.
