Fulham chase Championship defender



Fulham are expected to meet Nottingham Forest’s valuation of Michael Mancienne in their pursuit of the player, according to Vital Football.

Manager Kit Symons has been looking at Mancienne for a while and, with time running out to complete a deal before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday, is expected to submit a bid that will satisfy those at the City Ground.

The Cottagers are considering offering Mancienne a four-year deal for a fee of £4.5 million.

The former England under-21 international started his career at Chelsea but gained first-team experience on loan at Queens Park Rangers and Wolves, where he established himself as a versatile and dependable central defender.

His move to Hamburg in 2011 was a surprise to many but after a mixed spell in Germany, he returned to the Championship in 2014 when he was signed by Forest.

The 27-year-old has established himself as an important member of the squad at the City Ground, but could be tempted by a move back to the capital if Fulham come calling.

If the London club do make a move, the deal will have to be completed quite quickly with only two days of the transfer window remaining.

Fulham fans… What do you think? Is Mancienne a good signing? What would he bring to the team? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
