Fulham and Wolves are set to make a bid for Crystal Palace defender Zeki Fryers, according to Hopkins Looking to Curl One.
Fryers was signed for £1.5 million during the summer under Neil Warnock, and has yet to establish himself in the Palace staring eleven, with Martin Kelly and Joel Ward occupying those positions.
The Crystal Palace staff clearly don’t see the 22-year-old as a good enough option in a Premier League first team. Championship sides Fulham and Wolves are lining up offers, with a loan move the most likely option, although Fulham seem to be keen to sign him permanently.
Fryers started his career at Manchester United and made his first team debut in September 2011 and started alongside Michael Carrick in central defence against Leeds United in the League Cup. He kept a clean sheet in a 3-0 win.
He’s only ever made 31 appearances in his career, without scoring a goal. He joined Tottenham Hotspur from Standard Liege in January 2013. The transfer was criticised by Sir Alex Ferguson, who claimed Tottenham had breached the rules.
Fulham lost 1-0 to Cardiff City during the weekend, Cardiff’s first game back in blue colours. Sean Morrison scored the only goal of the game after flicking a header in the back of the net after a scramble in the box.
Wolves, however, beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0. Dave Edwards was set up by Nouha Dicko to score from outside the box. Although Rovers dominated possession with 59%, but both sides had 11 shots, with Wolves having four on target to Blackburn’s three.
Wolves have now climbed back up to eight place, having accumulated 40 points this season. Fulham have dropped to 18th having accumulated 28 points.
