Announcement imminent: Fulham midfielder agrees to join EFL club - Sources

Fulham midfielder Tayo Edun has agreed to join Lincoln City in a permanent move this month, Football Insider understands.

The 21-year-old is in the final six months of his contract at Craven Cottage and Fulham have decided to let him move this month.

A source at Lincoln has told Football Insider that Edun has agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal at the club and an announcement is imminent over his arrival.

Edun, who has come through the ranks at Fulham, is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at Craven Cottage, but he has found first-team opportunities hard to come by.

The versatile midfielder, who can also play in defence, has seven first-team appearances under his belt for the Cottagers, having made his debut in the League Cup back in 2016.

He spent the first half of last season out on loan at Ipswich Town, playing seven times and scoring once, before seeing his spell with the Tractor Boys cut short as a result of an eye injury.

However, he has not featured in a single matchday squad for Parker’s side this season and is on the brink of sealing a permanent move to League One with Lincoln.

A number of Football League clubs have shown an interest in Edun, but Lincoln have moved to lure the versatile performer to Sincil Bank.

The Imps are sitting 16th in League One after winning the League Two title by six points last season, with manager Michael Appleton looking to bolster his side for the second half of the season.

Edun is to become the second latest signing following the arrival of West Ham midfielder Conor Coventry on loan.
