Fulham vice-chairman Tony Khan says he is working on a deal to sign Southampton's Harrison Reed on a permanent basis.

The midfielder spent last season on loan with the Cottagers, helping them to Premier League promotion via the play-offs.

The Londoners' victory over Brentford means a swift return to the top flight after they were relegated at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Twenty-five-year-old Reed admitted earlier on this term that he has thrived under the tutelage of Scott Parker at Craven Cottage and that he would struggle to go back to being a bit-part player at St Mary's.

"My loans have all been really positive, I've learnt from three great managers, and I feel like I'm at the stage now where I've established myself in a very good side," he said before the play-offs.

"It's been a great season, it's a great group of players, and I love the feeling at Fulham, it’s always positive and has been ever since I stepped through the door.

Now, after securing promotion back to the promised land, Fulham chief Khan has admitted that a deal for Reed is in the pipeline.

“I’m working on it,” Khan told The Times. “I have an option to buy and I think he does want to stay.”

Khan added that he didn't expect a spending spree in West London this summer. He went on to say: “I feel better about the club, it’s not as if we have to build again, I have already exercised most of my options on loan players [Ivan Cavaleiro, Bobby Decordova-Reid, Anthony Knockaert] and I expect the squad to look very similar to the one that got promoted.

“We won’t spend £100 million again, I don’t think we need to. The best players we bought are still with us.”
