Premier League clubs seeking to liberate Fulham defender

West Brom and Wolves are both offering Fulham defender, Chris Baird, a route out of Craven Cottage and a chance for more first team football.

Since the arrival of Martin Jol, Baird has found places limited in the Fulham first team, with the likes of John Arne-Riise and Phillipe Senderos proving heavy competition.

The Northern Ireland international can play across the back four, an asset that Wolves boss Mick McCarthy sees as very valuable.

Baggies manager, Roy Hodgson, already knows just how good Baird is from his time as manager of Fulham.

Newcastle are rumoured to be looking at Nicky Shorey as a possible replacement for Jose Enrique, news that could spark Hodgson into making a move for the 29 year-old.
