Fulham agree deal to sign Dundee United forward Rory MacLeod

Fulham are closing in on the signing of Dundee United's 17-year-old striker Rory MacLeod, 90min understands.

The two clubs announced a collaboration in January 2022 which centres around the sharing of academy coaches and intell, with MacLeod expected to become the first player to move between the two clubs since the agreement was struck.

Sources have confirmed to 90min that Fulham have agreed a fee with Dundee United which could rise up towards the £1m mark if all bonuses and add-ons are triggered.

The Cottagers are looking to fend off interest from a number of Premier League clubs, with scouts from Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Southampton and West Ham all expressing an interest in the teenage striker in recent weeks.

MacLeod, who only turned 17 earlier in February, has already managed 12 appearances for the Scottish Premiership side and has been a regular feature off the bench in recent weeks.

After becoming the club's youngest ever player in February 2022, MacLeod even started for Dundee United in a meeting with Celtic last May, in what was just his third appearance for the team.

MacLeod is expected to travel to London in the coming days to finalise his switch to Fulham.
