Fulham are poised to rival Southampton for the signature of Tottenham's Kyle Walker-Peters after sealing an immediate return to the Premier League on Tuesday.

Saints and Spurs are close to agreeing a £12million fee for the defender , with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg set to move the other way in a separate deal worth around £15m.

However, Fulham are considering entering the bidding for Walker-Peters following their promotion to the Premier League via a 2-1 win over rivals Brentford in the Championship play-off final.

Fulham missed out to Saints on a loan deal for Walker-Peters in January but the Cottagers remain in the market for a right-back, with manager Scott Parker and his assistant Matt Wells both admirers of the 23-year-old, having worked with him in Spurs' academy.

Negotiations for Hojbjerg and Walker-Peters have been closely linked but the deals have deliberately been kept separate to ensure that one is not dependent on the other.
