DAMIEN DUFF is struggling with a knee injury which could rule him out for the rest of the season and potentially bring down the curtain on his Premier League career, writes Paul Hyland.
Out of contract at Fulham in the summer, there has been no indication from the club that are willing to offer him an extension and it is thought that he will not recover from his current injury in time to play a part in Fulham's continuing battle to avoid relegation.
The news will alert League of Ireland clubs and managers who would be more than happy to welcome the Duffer back to play out the final years of his career at home.
BRADY OUT FOR SEASON
Hull midfielder Robbie Brady has been ruled out for the remainder of the season - and Ireland's friendlies in May - after undergoing groin surgery.
The 22-year-old Dubliner, who has scored four goals in 18 appearances for the Tigers this term, has been troubled by a groin problem for much of the campaign and he had an operation earlier this week.
Hull manager Steve Bruce said: "He's got a long summer ahead of him."
