Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng will join Fulham on loan in the next 48 hours, sources close to the deal have exclusively told

The English side have offered to seal the loan for the Ghanaian player for six months before they seal a permanent contract in the summer.

Negotiations are expected to continue in the coming hours before the deal is firmed up as an earlier move by Fulham to sign Boateng fell through in August. can reveal that the deal was mooted by coach Martin Jol who has been keen on grabbing Boateng since the two sides met in the Europa League few months ago.

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 is set to get the chance of fulfilling his dream of moving to England.

Fulham knocked Dnipro out of the Europa League earlier this season, 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.

Now Fulham are believed to be in talks with Dnipro with the hope of thrashing out a deal before Monday.

Boateng only joined Dnipro earlier this summer when he arrived from Getafe in Spain, and played against Fulham in their recent Europa League tie.
