Keeping it local?

Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s immediate future remains unresolved as we enter the final 11 hours of the transfer window.

Will he stay and play very little as a back at the bottom of the pecking order or will he go and ideally find himself a team that could offer more readily available midfield minutes to help speed along his recovery from the Achilles rupture?

The answer to that question may be the latter, with friendly neighbors Fulham involved, as reports the Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg.

This newly promoted Fulham side have not started the season well at all, with three losses from three, which could make it a tricky environment for any loanee. But if proper expectations are maintained for the team and the player, that could also turn into an advantageous situation, and one where Loftus-Cheek could make excellent impact.

Fulham, who are currently managed by former Chelsea man Scott Parker, already count former Chelsea players Michael Hector and Ola Aina (on loan from Toronto) among their numbers.
