Royals linked with Fulham midfielder
We may not be anywhere near the summer window, but it hasn't stopped the odd rumour flying about!
The Daily Mail have been reporting that Jaap Stam is tracking the progress of out-of-favour Fulham cetnral midfielder, Ryan Tunnicliffe. He is currently playing out the season for relegation-destined Wigan, but is out of contract in the summer when his Fulham deal runs out.
We aren't the only club reportedly after him, with SPL side Rangers also intrigued, while Huddersfield, Brentford, QPR and Ipswich are also keeping half an eye on the former Manchester United youngster. Wigan will also fancy their luck in a deal, but will depend on what league they are in.
Considering we are currently overloaded with central midfielders, I'm not sure how genuine or realistic this interest will be. I can't see Mutch's move being made permanent, so Stam could be tracking his progress as a replacement. He could have plenty of undiscovered potential, we'll see!
