Burton Albion are hoping to sign Fulham’s Cauley Woodrow on a permanent deal according to a report from West London Sport.
The Brewers signed the 22-year-old striker on loan from Fulham back in the January transfer window as they looked to add a focal point to their attack, with their midfielders often contributing the most goals in their team before that and head coach Nigel Clough hoping to solve that issue. He would go on to be a great signing for Burton, scoring five goals in 14 appearances and becoming their joint third top scorer.
Thanks to these impressive performances, Burton are now looking to make Woodrow a permanent part of the Burton team. The club believe that because he only has one year left on his contract, they may be able to get him for a relatively low fee, especially if Fulham are not keen on keeping him around like it seemed earlier in the season.
However it is likely that Burton will have to wait for a decision on whether or not they will be able to sign Woodrow permanently. Fulham are currently involved in the play-offs and will be hoping to seal their place in the final by beating Reading in the second leg later on this week after drawing the first game 1-1. But while Fulham’s status as a Sky Bet Championship club is in doubt, it is unlikely that they will be making any decisions on the future of their squad.
One decision that has already been is on fellow Fulham loanee Lasse Vigen Christensen, who Burton do not want to sign permanently.
