Brighton midfielder Rohan Ince set for Fulham loan

Fulham

HITC Sport understands Fulham are poised to sign the Brighton midfielder.

Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Rohan Ince is set to join Championship rivals Fulham on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Fulham have lined up a move for Ince as they look to bolster their midfield options before the close of the transfer window.

The Cottagers are currently working under a transfer embargo and are only able to sign free agents or players on loan and they have identified Ince as one of their top targets.

Ince has found himself down the pecking order at Brighton this season and Seagulls boss Chris Hughton is willing to loan him out so that he can get regular first-team football.

The 23-year-old is highly-regarded at Brighton, but he found his first-team opportunities limited at the Amex Stadium this term, making just 15 appearances with most of those coming off the bench.

Ince joined Brighton in the summer of 2013 after leaving Chelsea and he quickly established himself in the side.

Ince's arrival at Craven Cottage will come as a welcome boost for manager Slavisa Jokanovic as he looks to guide his side away from trouble at the wrong end of the Championship table.
