Fulham man to ‘undergo’ medical tomorrow ahead of permanent exit

The latest Fulham news involves a potential departure

Fulham defender Marlon Fossey is reportedly edging towards a departure.

The Cottagers are said to have agreed a deal with Standard Liege to sell him on a permanent basis.

Fossey, 23, has played only once for Marco Silva’s side so far this season in the Carabao Cup.

According to a report by The Athletic, he will ‘undergo a medical’ on Monday ahead of his proposed switch to Belgium.

Fulham academy graduate

Fulham swooped to sign the full-back when he was just 11-years-old and he has since risen up through the academy.

He has been a regular for the London club at various youth levels over recent years but has only played once for their first-team.

Instead, the former USA youth international has gained experience out on loan in the Football League.

Fossey was first sent to Shrewsbury Town in League One during the 2020/21 season and ended up playing nine times for the Shrews.

He then had a spell with Bolton Wanderers last term and made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Trotters in League One.

The Los Angeles-born now appears to be on his way out from Craven Cottage permanently, with Standard Liege poised to land him. They are managed by ex-Celtic boss Ronny Delia these days.

Other news

In other Fulham news, Silva was disappointed after their loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

He told the club website:

“It wasn’t our best performance at all. Most of the time we didn’t reach our expected standards. In the first half we were not good enough on the ball, and we knew they would come to press us. We gave the ball away too many times, sometimes even without pressure.

“We made too many incorrect decisions and were not dynamic in order to create problems for the opposition.”
