FULHAM have an option to sign midfielder Harrison Reed from Saints, according to a report in the Telegraph.

The publication claims the option is for an £8million deal – although personal terms would still need to be agreed with the 25-year-old.

Reed played 27 times for Fulham on loan this season, helping them return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

He played all 120 minutes of a gruelling showdown with Brentford in the Championship play-off final at Wembley on Tuesday – as Scott Parker’s side sealed a 2-1 extra-time victory over the Bees.
