Fulham are keen to sign Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo and have already opened talks.
The 26-year-old’s deal with Sheffield United broke down due to problems with his medical.
The defender broke a bone in his foot whole on loan with Fulham early in the year and it required metalwork insertion to fix.
Sheffield United were unsure that the Defender was fit enough to return after the metalwork had been removed so that he could play again.
A deal is now being explored by Fulham and a medical examination will be conducted before deciding whether to push ahead with the deal before Friday’s domestic deadline.
The fee is rumoured to be around £3 million for the Holland international.
He signed for Huddersfield in 2018 for £18m from AS Monaco, meaning they are risking a £15m loss on the player. He has two years remaining on his correct contract with the club.
The centre-back has thus far made 60 appearances in all competitions for the Terriers.
Fulham themselves have had a terrible start to the Premier League season and are strong favourites for relegation.
Their defence has been a big problem this season and the co-owner even took to Twitter to apologise to the fans for not signing a defender and being weak at the back.
They have conceded 11 goals in their opening four Premier League games.
The Cottagers seem in desperate need for a defender and Kongolo could be seen as their best option, especially for just £3million.
