Fulham close on Bolat deal

Fulham are closing on a deal for goalkeeper Sinan Bolat but

Standard Liege say a deal is not yet completed.

Turkey international Bolat is currently training with Fulham

ahead of a proposed January switch.

The 24-year-old is out-of-contract in the summer and it is

believed a deal between Standard and Fulham has already been

agreed.

However, Bolat is yet to agree personal terms with Fulham – but

that is not expected to be an issue.

“With Sinan himself, there is no agreement, but I don’t suppose

he will say no,” confirmed Standard’s technical director

Jean-Francois de Sart.

There is little rush for the deal to be completed in earlier

January as he is currently recovering from a serious knee injury

which saw him miss most of last season.
