Fulham boss Parker determined to keep Bryan

Joe Bryan looks set to stay at Fulham despite apparent interest from Leeds United and Leicester City.

Leeds have reportedly made enquiries about the left-back, who has also been linked with Leicester as a potential replacement for Ben Chilwell following the England international’s recent move to Chelsea.

Fulham’s signing of left-back Antonee Robinson from Wigan seemed to suggest that Bryan might be on his way from Craven Cottage.

However, West London Sport reports that Fulham boss Scott Parker is determined to keep Bryan, whose two goals in the play-off final against Brentford took the club back to the Premier League.

Parker said: “Joe Bryan has been a massive part of what we’ve done and there’s no way I want him to leave the football club.

“Of course, we’ve brought in Antonee Robinson to give him a push for that position, but Joe Bryan is vital to the club.”

Fulham’s league season began with a crushing 3-0 defeat against Arsenal in a one-sided London derby on Saturday.

“When you are a team like us that has come from the Championship you can’t let defeat after defeat really cripple you,” Parker told the BBC.

“We are going to lose more than we win but as a team you have to keep learning and developing.”
