Fulham midfielder Tayo Edun is expected to join League One side Lincoln City on a permanent deal, according to a report by Football Insider.
The report claims that Edun is set to a sign a two-and-a-half-year deal at Sincil Bank and an announcement from the Imps is expected to be made imminently.
Edun has risen through the ranks at Fulham and has made seven first-team appearances for the club, but he’s really struggled for game time over the past few years.
The 21-year-old, who the first half of last season on loan at Ipswich Town, last featured for the first team in November 2017 and hasn’t been included in one of Scott Parker’s matchday squads this season.
With his contract at Craven Cottage set to expire at the end of the season, Fulham have decided to cash in on the highly-rated midfielder and he will be hoping to get his career back on track with the Imps.
QUIZ: Can you remember Fulham’s last 15 January deals?
This could be a decent signing for Michael Appleton and Lincoln City. Edun is a promising young player and even though things haven’t worked out for him at Fulham, he could be able to make an impact in League One with the Imps.
He’s a versatile player, who is capable of playing in defence and midfield, so he could be a very useful option for Appleton to have in his squad.
Things didn’t work out for him at Fulham, so he’ll be determined to work hard at Lincoln and get his career back on track.
