West Ham are confident in a deal for Fulham defensive star Ryan Fredericks despite interest from other Premier League clubs, as per HITC.

Everton and Swansea City have also taken an eye to the defender, who has impressed massively for Fulham this season.

The Cottagers currently sit second in the Championship table, and have gone over 20 games unbeaten as they look to gain promotion to the Premier League. The impressive run from Fulham has seen them climb from 12th to 2nd in the Championship table.

Fredericks contract at Fulham expires in the Summer, and David Moyes has been watching Fulham play, watching the Whites last week.

However, with Fulham looking like they’ll be playing in the Premier League next season, Fredericks could be tempted to stay at Craven Cottage, amid interest from other clubs.

The defender is keen on staying in the Capital however, something that could work in West Ham’s favour if Fredericks decides to move elsewhere this Summer.
