Fulham defender Alfie Mawson is poised to join Bristol City on loan, according to The Athletic reporter Adam Leventhal.

Mawson, who has struggled for both form and fitness in his two years at Craven Cottage, had been interesting a number of Championship sides over the summer, including Watford and QPR. Bristol City appear to have won the race for the Swansea defender’s services, with Fulham looking to bring in defensive reinforcements ahead of their return to the Premier League next weekend. The 26 year-old has not featured in Scott Parker’s first-team since January.
