Erik Nevland has moved a step closer to a move from Groningen to Fulham after Roy Hodgson admitted a deal was close for the former Man Utd striker, aged 30. Hodgson worked with Nevland at Viking.

"It was always a dream for me to play in the Premier League. This is the chance of my life," Nevland told Dagblad van het Noorden.

"I understand it is a difficult decision for Groningen to let me go, but this year I will be 31.

"Personally I prefer to end the season here, but that is not an option. It's now or never. I hope they will cooperate and I think I deserve that."
