Fulham to sign Bristol City new boy Ryan Fredericks

Fulham Craven Cottage

HITC Sport understands Fulham have agreed a deal to Bristol City defender Ryan Fredericks.

Bristol City defender Ryan Fredericks is set to join Fulham, just 28 days after joining the club from Tottenham, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Fredericks joined Bristol City earlier this month on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Tottenham.

The 22-year-old made five appearances during his brief stay at Bristol City, but due to unforeseen circumstances the stay has proved short-lived

Fredericks asked to leave Ashton Gate for personal reasons and Fulham have moved quickly to offer him a move to Craven Cottage.

Fulham were interested in Fredericks prior to his move to Bristol City, but have got their man at the second attempt.

Fredericks has passed a medical at Fulham and has agreed personal terms on a three-year deal to become Kit Symons' latest signing with Wolves defender Richard Stearman also set to make the move to Craven Cottage.

The move means Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill may be forced into a late foray into the transfer market to bring in a new right-back before Tuesday's deadline.
