Transfer gossip: Fulham linked with Deacon after FA Cup goal

Some of the latest transfer speculation involving our area’s Championship clubs…

It is claimed that Fulham want Sutton United midfielder Roarie Deacon.

The Wandsworth-born 25-year-old, who was at Arsenal as a youngster, scored a stunning goal as Sutton beat AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup this week.

That has inevitably triggered reports of interest from various clubs – and The Sun claim Fulham and Rotherham are interested.

Peterborough United are also said to be monitoring the player.

Hogan speculation

Crystal Palace and Watford remain interested in Scott Hogan, The Guardian say.

West Ham are keen to sign the Brentford striker and talks between the two clubs are ongoing.

Watford recently made an enquiry about Hogan, 24, and The Guardian suggest the Hornets are still keen.

Palace have also been linked with Hogan. There have been reports that West Ham are close to agreeing a deal to sign him.

The Mail claimed on Tuesday that a breakthrough had been reached, with the Hammers said to be offering a deal worth a total of £13.5m.

Coventry and Millwall linked with McCormack

Millwall and Coventry City have shown an interest in Alan McCormack, the Mail say.

McCormack, 33, has made only three league appearances for Brentford this season, the most recent of which came in October.

The Bees are reportedly willing to let him leave on loan in order for him to get game time elsewhere.

Bees and Fulham linked with Akpom

Brentford and Fulham are interested in taking Chuba Akpom on loan from Arsenal, according to The Times.

Cardiff City are also said to be keen on the 21-year-old forward, who made four appearances for Brenford during a loan spell at Griffin Park in 2014.

The Times say he could be allowed out on loan again and that a move to the Championship is likely.

QPR linked with Hibs forward

It is claimed that QPR are interested in Hibernian striker Jason Cummings.

A host of players north of the border have been linked with QPR by the Scottish media.

And the Daily Record now suggest that both the R’s and Barnsley are monitoring the 21-year-old Cummings.
