Scrap for Sidwell as Fulham exit is confirmed

Last Updated: Sat, 07 Jun 2014 15:03

Steve Sidwell has confirmed he's leaving Fulham following relegation with several Premier League clubs now competing for his services.

The midfielder is the latest first-team player to announce his departure from Craven Cottage after the club's relegation to the Championship as he joins the likes of Brede Hangeland, John Arne Riise, Damien Duff, Giorgos Karagounis and Mahamadou Diarra in heading for the exit.

The former Aston Villa and Chelsea man says he is sad to be leaving the club after three-and-a-half years but is keen to stay in the top flight next season.

He tweeted: "It saddens me to say my time at Fulham has come to an end. I have enjoyed every moment in the 3 and half years I've spent here.

"I've been so proud every time I pulled the jersey on and I wore it with pride, gave 100% every time and will always look back with great memories of my time at Fulham FC.

"I'd like to thank all the players, staff and managers for helping me along the way. But most of all I'd like to say thank you....all the fans who have been truly magnificent. From my 1st game to my last I've shared your passion.

"I will always have Fulham FC In my heart. Thank you for a special time and I wish you every success. COYW."

QPR are believed to be leading the chase for Sidwell and can offer him the chance to stay in London, while Stoke, West Brom, Hull City and Southampton have also been linked with the 31-year-old.
