West Brom move for Fulham man ruled out before the end of the transfer window

Latest news on the transfer front regarding Fulham involves a potential exit

Fulham boss Marco Silva has revealed he is willing for Josh Onomah to head out the exit door before the end of January. The midfielder has slipped down the pecking order at Craven Cottage and has seen his game time dry up.

Championship side West Brom saw a move to sign him collapse on the final day of the summer window under former manager Steve Bruce and a switch to the Hawthorns is now ‘off the table’ according to West London Sport.

The 25-year-old, who joined Fulham back in 2019 from Tottenham Hotspur, played 22 times in all competitions last term to help the Cottagers gain promotion to the Premier League. However, he has made just two league appearances so far in this campaign.

Football Insider have reported that QPR also wanted him when Michael Beale was in charge there and he has held that interest now at Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

Silva has provided this update to West London Sport: “It is possible for something to happen for Josh in this market. He needs to play. It is important to him. Last season he started really well but in the second half of the season he didn’t play so often.

“I had a conversation with him at the end of last season and we decided together that it was important for him to go for many reasons. Last summer things didn’t work out well for him getting more minutes elsewhere. He is a top lad, a great professional as well. Every training session he is there wanting to improve.”
