Matt Smith: Wolves target

Fulham have rejected several loan enquiries for striker Matt Smith, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Wolves are believed to have expressed an interest in Smith as they look to bolster their attacking options before the close of the loan window.

Smith has struggled for regular action at Fulham this season with Ross McCormack and Moussa Dembele ahead of him in the pecking order.

The 26-year-old has started just four games in the Championship this term, scoring one goal in 17 appearances for Fulham.

Several other Championship clubs have also enquired about Smith’s availability, but Fulham have snubbed all overtures for the former Leeds man.

Fulham are refusing to let Smith go out on loan due to their current predicament in the Championship with the club battling to avoid relegation, sitting just one point above the drop zone.

There is also likely to be summer interest in young forward Dembele and they would fear Smith’s loan exit might pave the way for a permanent move away from Craven Cottage.
