Fulham - Target Newcastle Striker!
With July drawing ever closer with the much vaunted return to pre-season training getting closer, the 'Daily Grapevine` is certainly cranking up its output.
Dredging the internet today, I`ve stumbled across a second real beauty of a rumour.

Stand by your beds - this one could be interesting!
