Marshall’s contract at Ewood Park is set to expire in one year’s time and the midfielder has expressed no desire to sign an extension to his deal due to the uncertainty that has plagued Blackburn.

A number of clubs such as Brighton and Hove Albion and Middlesbrough have expressed their interest in signing Marshall and now even Fulham are said to have joined in the race to secure the services of the former England Under-21 international.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has been forced to work under a transfer embargo since his arrival but the restrictions are set to be lifted in the summer and the 47-year old is already looking at options to improve his squad.

Jokanovic is believed to be an admirer of Marshall’s abilities and now according to reports, it has been claimed that the Serbian manager is ready to splash the cash for the £1.5million rated midfielder in the summer.
