Fulham's Taggart set for Perth move

Fulham

HITC Sport understands Fulham striker Adam Taggart is set to leave the club to return to Australia.

Fulham foward Adam Taggart has agreed a deal to re-join former club Perth Glory, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Taggart joined Fulham in the summer of 2014 from Newcastle Jets after impressing at the World Cup with Australia where he played against the Netherlands and Spain in the group stages.

The 22-year-old saw his first season at Fulham hampered by injuries and he has yet to make a first-team appearance for the club.

Taggart joined Scottish side Dundee United on transfer deadline day in the summer and he made nine appearances for the Tannadice outfit before returning to Fulham earlier this month.

Fulham are willing to let Taggart leave as he is well down the pecking order at Craven Cottage and he does not figure in the club's long-term plans.

A number of clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in Taggart, but Perth Glory have moved quickly to agree a deal to bring him back to the A-League.

Taggart began his career at Perth Glory and spent two seasons at the Western Australian club before joining Newcastle Jets.
