Fulham could be set to offer former midfield star Steve Sidwell the opportunity to return to Craven Cottage according to Get West London.

Sidwell is out of favour at current club Stoke City and has made just 5 league starts for The Potters since joining the club from Fulham in the summer of 2014. The midfielder signed for the club on a free transfer following his release by Fulham after their relegation to the Championship. The midfield ace has not featured in a Premier League fixture since the opening day of the season.

The 33 year old veteran could be tempted to end his Stoke City misery with a move back to London where his family currently live. Sidwell has spent most of his career in the South of England playing for Fulham, Reading and Chelsea.

Fulham are currently in mid table in the Championship and are currently under a transfer embargo after failing to meet Financial Fair Play rules and regulations. The club are able to make an attempt to sign Sidwell on a loan arrangement but cannot sign players on a permanent basis until the transfer embargo is lifted.

In his first spell at Craven Cottage, Sidwell made 114 appearances for the club scoring 17 goals in three and a half seasons in West London.
