Fulham Join Race For Saidy Janko

Fulham Join Race For Saidy Janko

Fulham are keeping tabs on Porto full-back Saidy Janko but will face strong competition for the player’s signature.

The 23-year-old has impressed in the early part of this season while on loan at Nottingham Forest, who have mounted a push for promotion from the Championship, and his form is said to have caught the eye of a number of clubs.

Janko started on the books of Manchester United before moving on to Celtic, Saint-Etienne and then Porto, who subsequently loaned him to Forest.

It is thought that Janko would jump at the chance of a return to the English top flight and both Fulham and Wolves said to be keen on doing a deal.

It has been suggested that both clubs will attempt to wrap up a deal in the January transfer window with a view to the player signing on a permanent basis when his loan deal with Forest is up.

However, the Cottagers look to be in need of reinforcements this January following a poor start to life back in the Premier League, and may prefer to sign players in the next window rather than line up deals for the summer.
