Jason Cummings: Linked with move to Fulham

Fulham are ready to join the chase for in-demand Hibernian striker Jason Cummings after watching him in action in the League Cup final on Sunday, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

A host of clubs in England have been tracking Cummings as a result of his goalscoring exploits for Hibs this season.

Cummings has scored 20 goals in 33 games for Hibs so far this season and is regarded as one of the best young prospects north of the border.

The likes of Burnley, Derby, Wolves, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest have all been credited with an interest in Cummings and now Fulham are keeping tabs on the striker.

Fulham stepped up their interest in Cummings by sending representatives to cast an eye over the 20-year-old at close quarters in Sunday’s Scottish League Cup final defeat to Ross County.

Cummings failed to score in Sunday’s final as Ross County picked up their first major silverware with a late strike at Hampden Park.

Hibs are keen to keep hold of their prize asset and have offered Cummings a new contract, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the striker this summer.
