Derek Boateng: A long-term target of Fulham

Fulham boss Martin Jol has attempted to sign the 30-year-old midfielder on several occasions before and may have finally landed the Ghana international.

Boateng is believed to be one of the unnamed players Jol said a deal had been agreed with at his pre-match press conference last week.

And the former Getafe, Cologne and Beitar Jerusalem man is set to be confirmed on a two-year deal at Craven Cottage.

Contract dispute

Fulham thought they had concluded a deal in January, when they won a work permit for him, but the transfer was put on hold earlier this year because of a contract dispute between Boateng and Dnipro.

But Boateng is now a free agent after he took his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and they ruled in his favour - freeing him to finalise a deal.

Sky Sports revealed in April that Fulham had revived their interest in Boateng, having failed to finalise a deal in January.

Fulham have already confirmed that a deal has been agreed with full-back Sascha Riether, who is to move to west London permanently after impressing during a loan stint.

Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta is also arriving on a free transfer this summer, whilst Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and Wolves midfielder Bakary Sako have also been linked with the Craven Cottage club.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
