Fulham are on the verge of signing Dnipro midfielder Derek Boateng, according to The Guardian.
The same source claims the Ghana international has already passed a medical at Craven Cottage, with the deal subject to the two clubs agreeing a transfer fee.
Fulham are prepared to offer around £2 million for the experienced midfielder and they hope that will be enough to prize him to North London.
Cottagers boss Martin Jol has been a long-time admirer of Boateng and has been closely monitoring the player’s situation in Ukraine over the last few months.
Despite showing a lot of potential since joining Dnipro from Getafe, the 29-year-old has been dropped from the squad at the start of the season and hasn’t made a single appearance since August.
Fulham officials, nonetheless, believe he has what it takes to help the Cotagers this season, and hope to conclude the deal before the players returns from Africa Cup of Nations.
