Fulham are considering recalling Ryan Tunnicliffe from his loan spell at Championship rivals Blackburn Rovers.
The former Manchester United midfielder has made just two starts at Craven Cottage since his permanent switch down south earlier this year.
Tunnicliffe joined Blackburn on loan in August after being deemed surplus to requirements by former boss Felix Magath.
The 21-year-old has scored one goal in 10 appearances during his time at Ewood Park and is due to remain with Gary Bowyer's side for the rest of the campaign.
However, Kit Symons, who worked with Tunnicliffe with Fulham's U21s at the beginning of the season, is contemplating triggering a break clause in the deal to bring the youngster back to SW6 in January.
