Fulham’s Fredericks looks set to join West Ham

Ryan Fredericks is close to completing a move to West Ham.

The Hammersmith-born Fredericks, who is out of contract, played a key role in Fulham’s promotion-winning campaign.

He has been offered a new deal but is set to leave despite the play-off triumph which secured a return to the top flight for Fulham after a four-year absence.

The 25-year-old’s representatives have been in discussions with West Ham and an agreement now seems to be close.

Fredericks, who started his career at Tottenham and made his senior debut during a loan spell at Brentford, joined Fulham from Bristol City in 2015.

He has made 114 appearances for the Whites, with 48 of them coming last season.
