Damien Duff sought after by Fulham

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

### Duff - Hodgson interested

I suppose you could say things go from bad to worse for Newcastle, first sources close to the club indicating that they are ready to take Newcastle United from the market and now, one of our half decent players ready to move down London way to opt for Fulham. You can’t blame Damien for wanting to leave and especially to a prospering side such as Fulham. Roy Hodgson who rescued Fulham on the last day from relegation a few seasons back has turned Fulham into a feared side and they have a very bright future. Roy knows Damien and thinks he’d be tempted for a move down to the capital.

Roy said :

‘The clubs are talking and I hope the deal will go through. He’s a player that interests us,’

‘Damien and I go back a long way from when we worked together at Blackburn. He wants to come back to west London.

‘Damien had injury problems at Chelsea and has done well at Newcastle given the turmoil there.

‘Every time he’s played for Ireland he’s consistently been one of their best performers.

‘We know what we’d be getting with Damien - he’s an experienced and quality player.’

If Duff is to leave which we expect him to do so, we need replacements and very fast. If Ashley’s staying then we need new faces in and as soon as tomorrow, we’ve got Simpson on loan but we need more than loan signings, some permanent. And most importantly, Shearer as manager to coach them.

Comments welcome 🙂

Yeah, but Moyes has rejected the move, claiming it's too expensive. Good news for us I suppose :)

I am a loyal irish american toon army soldier. I discovered football during my first tour in iraq 5 years ago. I fell in love with the toon because of there loyal fans and blue collar manner. I didnt go for man u, arsenal, liverpool, or chelsea like every other fairweather fan. Now with all the turmoil around the club it kills me. Ive read the history of the toon and its so rich in tradition and success and it feels i came to the toon during a disaterous time. As i type shola ameiobi has just put the toon up 2 on reading. We are still alive lads. Mike Ashley sale the club please and get out of the way. You have butchered the club enough. Give us al back and a real owner who wants to restore us back to our rightful spot as the fifth big club in england. Toon army for life!!!!!
