Fulham Scout Eyes Championship Clash

Fulham Scout Eyes Championship Clash

Fulham could be back in for Mason Holgate after chief scout Brian Talbot saw him play for West Brom in Tuesday’s play-off semi-final. The Cottagers were rumoured to be keen on the Everton defender ahead of last January’s transfer window but he joined the Baggies instead – making 21 starts for the Championship club.

The Toffees have been monitoring his development at West Brom and may decide that his versatility across the backline will be a useful asset next term. But Everton boss Marco Silva was happy to let him go in January and may listen to offers in the summer for the 22-year-old.

Another reason for Talbot’s scouting mission at the Hawthorns could be Stefan Johansen, who was allowed to join West Brom on a season-long loan last January. Fulham have already confirmed they have renewed the Norwegian’s contract and it looks like he will be part of Scott Parker’s plans for next season.
