American international midfielder Emerson Hyndman is to leave Fulham when his contract expires next month, according to an ESPN report.

Fulham had hoped to keep the highly-rated midfielder, but Hyndman has informed the club he will not be signing a new contract as he plans to move on.

Hyndman made his debut last season and made 11 appearances before a broken collar bone restricted his progress at Craven Cottage.

The 20-year-old figured in 17 games this term and scored his first goal for the club with the winner against Cardiff in April.

Fulham beat a host of clubs to Hyndman’s signature in 2011 when they signed him as a 15-year-old from FC Dallas and, despite his lack of action, he was always highly-regarded at Fulham.

News of Hyndman’s decision to turn down a new deal at Fulham is sure to alert a number of clubs with the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham, West Ham United all admirers of the talented midfielder.

Fulham would be due a compensation fee if Hyndman was to move to another club in England, but they would get nothing if the player decided to move abroad when his contract expires.
