TEAMtalk understands Fulham have agreed terms with Hartlepool for Luca Murphy, but they still face competition for his signature.

The 17-year-old defender has emerged as a target for a host of clubs in recent months with Wolves and West Ham already showing an interest in the talented youngster.

We can now reveal that Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have joined the chase for Murphy and could be ready to make a late move to snatch him.

Murphy though is now set for talks with Fulham, who are keen to secure his signature having tracked him for a number of months.

Centre-back Murphy, who has yet to appear for the first team, is under contract until June 2020 and has been impressing for Hartlepool’s under-19 side.
