Stefan Johansen: Midfielder set for Fulham

Fulham are on the verge of signing Stefan Johansen with Celtic ready to cash-in on the midfielder, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Johansen is in the final year of his contract at Celtic Park and he has rejected offers to sign a new deal.

As a result Celtic have decided to let the Norwegian international go rather than let him run down his contract and leave on a free transfer.

Johansen has hardly featured for Celtic this season under new manager Brendan Rodgers with the midfielder making just one appearance as a substitute in the Champions League qualifier against Astana.

Fulham have moved quickly to try and bring the 25-year-old to Craven Cottage as Slavisa Jokanovic looks to bolster his squad before the close of the transfer window.

Johansen has undergone a medical with Fulham and is expected to seal his move to west London in the next 24 hours.
