Fulham could make a January move for Watford centre back Craig Cathcart, if reports are to be believed.

The Northern Ireland international defender was part of the Hornets side which won promotion to the Premier League under Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic two years ago.

The 28 year old recently signed a new four-year deal at Vicarage Road, but was left out of Watford's 25-man Premier League squad.

This, however, is largely due to a knee injury which has restricted him to just 19 minutes' action this season, and will see him sidelined until at least Christmas.

Former Manchester United defender Cathcart has made just shy of 100 appearances for Watford since signing on a free transfer from Blackpool in the summer of 2014.
