Fulham interested in defender Mbabu

Fulham are interested in signing former Newcastle right-back Kevin Mbabu from Swiss club Young Boys.

The 23-year-old joined Newcastle in 2013 and made just three league appearances for the Magpies before returning to his native Switzerland.

His performances have since attracted interest from a number of clubs and Fulham are ready to hand him the chance of a return to England.

The Whites have been looking for a right-back since losing Ryan Fredericks to West Ham.

They have made an approach for Mbabu but are yet to submit a formal bid.

Reports in the Swiss media suggest Basel are also interested in him.
