Fulham

Cottagers look set to lose defender

19th April 2019, 15:22 by Simon Barlow

Defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has a knee ligament problem and is doubtful for Fulham's Premier League trip to Bournemouth.

Floyd Ayite could return from a muscle issue, while Alfie Mawson is close to recovering from the knee injury he suffered while changing his boots.

Interim Fulham boss Scott Parker says promising 16-year-old winger Harvey Elliott could be handed a regular role in the senior squad next season.

Elliott, who became Fulham's youngest player when he made his debut at Millwall in the Carabao Cup last September aged 15, has been training with the first team and was named on the bench for last Saturday's 2-0 win against Everton.

The England youth international has impressed Fulham boss Parker and is set to be given more experience during the final weeks of the season as the club prepare for life in the Championship.

"Harvey has got unbelievable talent," said Parker. "Ultimately it will be down to him, how hard he works and how quickly he can make that transition to men's football.

"This club need players like Harvey, Steven Sessegnon and Marlon Fossey and we are looking towards involving them more."
