I must say I was surprised to read that Fulham were planning to shell out £3m on Bristol City’s Marvin Elliott. Whilst his tall stature would indicate that he might be a possible deputy for Dickson Etuhu, the vast outlay of money on somebody who played just 28 games last season seems excessive.

Roy might be able to get something more out of him (a la Etuhu), so I guess we will just have to watch and see how this one pans out. It could all be paper talk.
