Fulham have lodged late bids for Manchester United youngsters Ryan Tunnicliffe and Larnell Cole, according to a Sky Sports News report tonight.

The pair are well known to Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen who helped bring the midfielders through the Manchester United academy when he was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s backroom staff. Tunnicliffe captained United’s under-21 side to the domestic title, while winger Cole is widely regarded as one of the English game’s brightest young talents.
