Fulham move to sign Derek Boateng

Published on: 30 August 2011

Fulham are in talks to sign Ghana ace Derek Boateng from Dnipro, understands.

Boateng only joined the Ukrainian side earlier this summer when he arrived from Getafe in Spain.

West Brom had made a bid for him then, but Boateng instead opted to sign a four-year deal with Dnipro.

But now just a few months into his deal with the Ukrainian club, he could get the chance to move to England.

Fulham knocked Dnipro out of the Europa League earlier this month, and despite being with them - Boateng is understood to have impressed manager Martin Jol.

The Cottagers boss is now hoping Fulham can strike a deal, which would see Boateng arrive in West London.

Having already sealed one permanent deal in this window, Fulham's bid would have to be a loan one with a view to a full transfer.

Now Fulham are believed to be in talks with Dnipro with the hope of thrashing out a deal before Wednesday's deadline.

    He will only be cup-tied for the europa league matches. Also he can ONLY join on loan as no player is allowed to join two clubs on a permament deal in the same transfer window.

    Hope the move goes thru!!...hopefully during the january transfer window, inkoom will also follow suit to an EPL club, I always new going to Dnipro was just a short spell and a steping stone for them to get to the EPL, hence, their wages will prolly be increased as well!!!
