Championship side Fulham are set to make a move to sign Watford defender Craig Cathcart, the Mirror reports on page 46 of its printed edition on Monday.
Manager Slasiva Jokanovic wants a reunion with his former centre half who helped him win promotion to the Premier League in 2015, who has only played once for the Hornets this season, mostly due to injury.
However, Cathcart seemingly does not feature in the plans of Watford manager Marco Silva, allowing Fulham a chance to bolster their back line in January.
With 33 caps for Northern Ireland to his name, Cathcart has been in and out of the Watford side since joining the club in 2014 from Blackpool, making just over 70 appearances in that time.
Fulham have yet to start the season with the explosive form in which they finished the last, having lost in the play off semi-final to Reading last season.
Unbeaten in their last three, however, things are looking up for the London based side, who will be hoping to go all the way this year.
Fulham have shown a very decent ability to score goals on a regular basis this season, albeit not quite to the extent they managed to in 2016/17.
Their defence has been far from perfect, however, and with the club only keeping two league clean sheets so far this season and letting in 10 goals, they could do with some back line additions.
Their options of Tomas Kalas, Tim Ream and Michael Madl are impressive, but it seems with summer signing Marcelo Djalo is out of the picture so far, and thus they could use another option.
Fulham fans… What do you make of this news? Would Cathcart be a welcome addition? Let us know in the comments below.
