'Immense', 'Exactly what's required' - Tottenham fans call on club to re-sign 25-yr-old on free
By Richard Parks
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to re-sign Ryan Fredericks on a free this summer following his brilliant season at Fulham.
The right-back has been strongly linked with a summer transfer, with Arsenal and West Ham among the clubs said to be very keen on signing him.
Fredericks is out of contract at Craven Cottage and can be bought for nothing, which makes him a very attractive target ahead of the summer window.
The 25-year-old has had an outstanding campaign for automatic promotion hopefuls Fulham and was named last Sunday in the Championship team of the year alongside teammates Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney.
Fredericks, who graduated from the Spurs academy but quit in 2015 after a single senior appearance, has started 41 Championship matches this season and supplied an impressive nine assists from his flank role.

A section of Spurs supporters believe he would be a top addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, with one hailing him as “immense” and another as “exactly what’s required”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
#thfc Our academy graduate, Ryan Fredericks is being lined up for a free transfer to either Arsenal or West Ham at the expiration of his Fulham contract. Don’t feel great about this, anything we could do with the RB/RWB. Would count as a Home Grown player in CL & PL squads. pic.twitter.com/GLYQXVyVkZ

His development for the past two seasons have been immense. Really exploiting his pace and racking up 7 assists this campaign. Did you rate him as a youth player?

Prefer RF at the club at the moment to SA, who may as well start the game by putting the ball on PK spot in our area. SA also needs to work on his wide deliveries because he consistently connects with the side of his heel. RF is solid, fast & reliable. Exactly what’s required.

The one first team match he played, i recall he had a decent levrl game. I thought he left for 1st team chances at Middlesborough.

He’s decent. Not too 6 standard. Will probably join West Ham

Would be a good bit of business for West Ham but can see him signing a new deal at Fulham should they get promoted.
