Fulham confirm Taggart loan to Dundee United

Fulham have confirmed that Adam Taggart has been loaned to Scottish outfit Dundee United until January. 

The 22-year-old Socceroo joined the Cottagers from Newcastle Jets on a three-year contract in June last year but struggled with injury and has not made a competitive first team appearance for the club.

Taggart is currently in Istanbul with the Olyroos ahead of their upcoming match against Turkey’s U21 national team, in preparation for January’s Olympic qualifiers in Doha.

The seven-times capped Socceroo and former A-League Golden Boot had a solid build up to the 2015/16 season with Fulham, and was on target for the English side during their tour of Austria.

Manager Kit Symons had challenged the striker to take his chances in pre-season.

"Tags' had a stinking season with injuries last term, it was really frustrating for him,” Symons told the club’s official website in July.

"But he’s come back, worked hard and he’s been bright and aggressive. He’s been given an opportunity and we’ll have to see if he takes it."

Dundee United were previously linked with the takeover of the Jets, currently under FFA administration.
