Has Chris Martin Demanded Fulham Grant Him A Rams Return?
Friday, 30th Dec 2016 15:24 by Daniel J Sewart
Various media outlets have been reporting today that Chris Martin is demanding to be released from his season long loan deal with Fulham and be returned to the Rams.
If the reports are to be believed – Martin has been left out of Fulham’s squad for tonight’s match against Reading after informing the club of his desire to return to his parent club.
Details of the deal have been in the past reported as all three parties having to agree for the deal to become permanent following this season – and a recall possible if both the player and Fulham agree in January.
How Fulham play it from here will be interesting as it is likely McClaren and DCFC would welcome Martin back with open arms – especially as Martin has been in very good form, having scored 11 goals for Fulham in recent matches.
The Rams have been on a brilliant run but have struggled to find an answer up top with neither of the first choice strikers delivering bags of goals during their recent unbeaten run.
Darren Bent has been doing well in the role but there is no doubt McClaren would see Martin as an obvious answer to the problem, especially as the pair have worked very successfully together before.
In other news - reports have surfaced today that a fee has been agreed to between Stoke and Derby for Lee Grant. Nothing has been officially confirmed as yet by either club who were recently debating what he was worth with the clubs seemingly well apart in their valuations.
Lee Grant was begging the Rams to help him make his dream move to the top flight a reality - so perhaps all parties have finally found common ground for the Rams second choice keeper.
More information on both stories will no doubt be available soon and RamZone will give the latest overview and reaction as soon as it becomes available.
