Just as with Lauri Dalla Valle yesterday the Fulham Chronicle have a piece on another promising Fulham player calling for a loan move, this time with keeper David Stockdale. Stockdale, 25, had this to say:

“I need games. We’ve signed a new keeper so I might be able to go out on loan.

“I’m definitely looking to get out and get some games and I think the manager is thinking the same thing.

“I came to show what I can do and I want to go out and do that again. You can’t rest on your laurels and need to continue proving yourself all the time.”

The signing of reserve keeper Somogyi seems to be with the sole purpose of letting Stockdale go out on loan and a season long move to Leeds has been strongly rumoured for some time now. After the Europa League game on Thursday I expect something to happen not before long.
