Fulham and Stoke are both rumoured to have enquired about Real Madrid’s Royston Drenthe.
Fulham and Stoke are eyeing moves for Real Madrid’s Royston Drenthe, according to reports.
Drenthe has been told he can leave Real as he does not figure in Jose Mourinho’s plans at El Santiago Bernabeu.
The Dutchman was not included in Real’s squad for their opening Primera Liga clash at Real Mallorca at the weekend.
French side Monaco were believed to be keen on signing the versatile left sider, but Drenthe is thought to have rejected a move to the Principality.
And now Marca claim Premier League pair Fulham and Stoke are interested in the left-sided player.

This would be a massive coup for either club, as Drenthe has proved that he is a fantastic player who is available to cover a variety of positions. The Dutchman can play anywhere on either the left or right hand side of the pitch, and is rumoured to be keen on a switch to the Premier League after rejecting the chance to join Monaco.
Drenthe was linked with a move to Liverpool last month after a post on Twitter declaring the transfer was bought to the media’s attention. The post was later declared as false, but now the former Holland Under-21 star is again being linked with the Premier League.
