Fulham full back Marlon Fossey is set to join Bolton Wanderers on loan for the remainder of the season.

The American defender, who has seen his development at Fulham severely restricted by several serious knee injuries, has starred at right back for Fulham’s under 23s this season and had been tipped to make a loan move in January by Steve Wigley. He has contributed five assists in eleven matches from right back with the young Whites top of the PL2 Second Division table. The 23 year-old has yet to make his senior debut for the Whites but was an unused substitute as Marco Silva’s side were beaten on penalties by Leeds United in the League Cup back in September.

Fossey, a former United States under-20 international, spent the first half of last season on loan with Shrewsbury Town – making seven senior appearances. Bolton are currently fifteenth in League One, with 26 points from 22 games.
