Fulham lose out on Baird!
Chris Baird, the Southampton defender linked with Fulham, appears to be on the way to Sunderland.
It is being reported on Sky Sports News that a fee has been agreed, rumoured to be in the region of £3.5 million and that Roy Keane has convinced the defender that the future at Sunderland is bright.
With Zat Knight having signed a new contract, keeping him at Fulham until 2010, we`re not exactly crying out for a central defender although the rumour mill has already linked us with Danny Shittu, currently playing at Watford.
We`ll endeavour to keep you informed.
