Fulham goalkeeper Magnus Norman could be set to leave the club with AFC Wimbledon, Bristol Rovers and Northampton all interested in his services, a source has exclusively confirmed to Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke.
Norman is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Cottagers after climbing through the club’s academy ranks, and it now appears he could be set to depart the West London side on a permanent transfer with three EFL clubs interested.
The 22-year-old has been sent out on four loan spells by the West London side – with the most recent of these seeing him make 12 appearances for Rochdale last term – but he has been behind Marek Rodak and Marcus Bettinelli in the pecking order this term.
It is believed that Norman’s potential departure could depend on whether Bettinelli stays at Fulham in January, as the club may look to keep hold of Norman if Bettinelli seals a move away from Craven Cottage.
The 27-year-old started the season as the number-one choice between the sticks for Scott Parker’s side, but the fact he has been ousted by Rodak in recent weeks means he could be set to leave the club next month.
Bettinelli’s potential departure means Norman would then become Fulham’s second-choice goalkeeper by default, and it is thought this circumstance would most probably see the 22-year-old remain at the Cottage.
Norman was named on the first-team bench for their match against Hull back in early November, but he has largely been limited to Under-23 appearances in West London so far this term.
