Fulham and Crystal Palace both interested in non-league 6ft 7in giant defender

Nick Davis has confirmed that Fulham have made enquiries

Fulham have reportedly enquired about Sittingbourne's 19-year-old defender Lex Allan, along with Crystal Palace and Birmingham.

Allan, who is 6ft 7in and plays at centre back, has been training with Millwall for a second time last week but manager Nick Davis has confirmed that Fulham have made enquiries whilst Palace want him to train with them.

Sittingbourne are in the Isthmian League Division One South and Allan has made six appearances for them so far this season, having joined from Sunday League football over the summer.

And manager Davis told Kent Online: "He was at Millwall again last week, Palace have said they want him to train with them and Fulham have also enquired.

"There was also a scout from Birmingham at our League Cup game against Ramsgate last Tuesday but we didn’t play Lex that night.

"He’s getting some stick from the boys about going for a big price but he’s taking it all in his stride.

"You don’t often get someone that big - that’s why he’s getting all the attention."
