FULHAM have emerged as potential suitors for Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole.

Skipper Cattermole is expected to leave the Stadium of Light this summer, if Sunderland find anyone willing to match the 25-year-old’s wages.

Although Cattermole is now fully fit after recovering from the knee injury which ruled him out of the second half of last season, Paolo Di Canio has refused to confirm whether he has a future at the club, as reported by the Echo last week.

Reports today have linked Fulham with a £2.5million move for the former Middlesbrough man.

The Cottagers are also interested in out-of-favour Sunderland full-back Phil Bardsley, who has been training with the club’s Under-21s during pre-season.
