Fulham plot late swoop for Championship defender

Published

on

Fulham are lining-up a bid for Birmingham City’s Kristian Pedersen, reports Football Insider.

Pedersen, 25, has played 31 games in all competitions for Birmingham this season, scoring three goals.

According to Football Insider, Fulham are keen on bringing the left-back to Craven Cottage before the transfer window slams shut at 11pm tonight, but they’d need to offload a player in order to do so.

The only Fulham player to be linked with a move away from the Cottage this month is Joe Bryan.

The left-back has been linked with moves to both Watford and Southampton this month, and Fulham boss Scott Parker could be lining-up Pedersen as a replacement for Bryan should he depart in the final few hours of the window.

Watford are also said to be interested in Pedersen, having had an approach for the Dane knocked back last week.

It’d be Fulham’s sixth signing of the transfer window, with their most notable additions being the permanent signings of both Ivan Cavaleiro from Wolves and Bobby Reid from Cardiff.

Which club does David Stockdale play for?

Pedersen is a fine Championship player and one who’d give Bryan good competition if he stayed, but would also be an ideal replacement for him if he headed to the Premier League.

The verdict

He won’t come cheap or easy, but Fulham have a good few hours to pursue Pedersen if they wish.

It’s likely all down to the future of Bryan though – should he be heading for the door then Fulham will have to step-up their pursuit of the Birmingham man and fast, as to not be left short-handed come tomorrow.
