Another report linking Fulham with a swoop for Bristol City’s Nicky Maynard in January.

Fulham scouts have been keeping a close eye on the 24 year-old striker and they were among a number of top flight representatives who saw Maynard score twice at Millwall on Sunday. It may take a big fee to prize Maynard, who cost City £2.25m from Crewe three years ago, away from Ashton Gate. I’m not sure how much credence to give the assertion that Maynard, for all his lower-league goalscoring prowess, would be Martin Jol’s preferred replacement for Andy Johnson.
