Fulham are mulling a summer move for Bristol City centre back Aiden Flint as they seek to improve their defensive options ahead of a return to the Premier League.

Flint has caught the eye of Slavisa Jokanovic with several outstanding displays for City in the Championship this season. The tall defender has been one of the division’s most consistent defensive performers since signing from Swindon Town and was named man of the match in City’s League Cup semi-final clash with Manchester City. Jokanovic is known to be an admirer of Flint, who also attracted interest from Brighton in January.

Flint signed a new contract with the Ashton Gate outfit in March but City chiefs are braced for further interest in their 6ft 6in defender this summer.
