Nizaar Kinsella at London Evening Standard Fulham are in advanced talks to sign Brighton defender Shane Duffy, sources have told Football Insider.

The Cottagers have turned their attention to completing a deal for Duffy, 30, as they look to recruit a proven Premier League centre-back.

Brighton have given the green light to the departure of the Republic of Ireland international amid the impending arrival of Levi Colwill.

Duffy, who had a spell on loan at Celtic during the 2020-21 campaign, made 20 appearances in all competitions for Brighton last season.

Colwill is set to join the seaside club on loan as part of the deal which will take Marc Cucurella to Chelsea for a reported £62million.

Fulham are desperate to improve their centre-back options as they aim to survive instant relegation from the Premier League following last season’s Championship title success.

Duffy is out of contract at the Amex Stadium next summer and can negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides in January 2023.

He has amassed 113 Premier League appearances across six seasons and has also accrued experience in the Championship and Scottish Premiership.

The 55-time Republic of Ireland international came through the ranks at Everton, making his debut in 2009.

Fulham start their Premier League campaign against Liverpool on Saturday (6 August).

They have completed deals for Andreas Pereira, Manor Solomon, Bernd Leno, Kevin Mbabu, and Joao Palhinha so far this summer.
