Fulham and QPR are in the running to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan from Tottenham but reportedly face competition from the likes of Derby County and Middlesbrough.
The centre-back was recently recalled from a loan spell at Stoke City and is expected to go back out on loan next week.
Teamtalk say Fulham are among a host of Championship clubs keen on the USA international and that there is also interest from Derby, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield.
West London Sport reported earlier this month that QPR were interested in Carter-Vickers as they look for a central defender.
The player appears to have no future at Spurs, where he is well down the pecking order of centre-backs under Jose Mourinho.
Teamtalk say any loan deal is likely to include an option to sign Carter-Vickers on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Fulham boss Scott Parker is confident he will not lose star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the final days of the transfer window despite the Serbian being linked with Premier League clubs – including Spurs.
Parker said at a press conference: “I’m not worried. he’s very committed.
“I feel like he’s in a good place and he’s leading scorer in the division. I think he has a sole aim of helping us reach our goal and being successful this year. I suspect everything will be fine in the next week.”
