Fulham are among the fronturnners to sign Paris Saint Germain midfielder Edoaurd Michut after Sunderland decided not to sign their loan star on a permanent basis, according to reports this morning.

Michut, who lost his place in Tony Mowbray’s starting eleven in the final weeks of the season following the emergence of Pierre Ekwah, caught the eye of Fulham head Marco Silva during Fulham’s two meetings with the Black Cats in this season’s FA Cup. The 20 year-old, who made 28 appearances in all competitions whilst with Sunderland, is heading back to Paris to consider his future – with the prospect of returning to England to play in the Premier League understood to appeal to the PSG academy graduate. He has made eight senior appearances for PSG and helped them win Ligue 1 last season.

Michut, who started his career with FC Le Chesnay 78 and Versailles before moving to the Camp des Loges in 2016, is likely to move on permanently this summer. He caused consternation by failing to turn up to arranged meeting with Luis Campos, PSG’s senior football advisor, and was handed a formal warning as to his future behaviour as a punishment. The former French youth international impressed with his passing and technical ability at Craven Cottage in January’s fourth round FA Cup tie – and he could return to SW6 as one of Fulham’s summer signings.
