Bristol City are interested in signing Fulham keeper Marcus Bettinelli ahead of the new Championship season.

The 25-year-old had been back-up to David Button since his arrival from Brentford in the summer but regained his place in April as Fulham defeated Ipswich Town 3-1.

He then started the remaining games as Fulham got to the Championship Play-off semi final, one they lost to Reading 2-1 on aggregate.

Bettinelli, who is a fan's favourite at Fulham, would like to stay at his childhood club, but exclusively told GetWestLondon after the Reading defeat that he needed to be playing regularly as he celebrated his 25th birthday .

And it is believed that Bristol are monitoring the keeper, with goalkeeping coach David Coles watching the Play-off defeat from the stands, wit the club contemplating making an offer for the 25-year-old as they look to strengthen their goalkeeping department.
