The agent of Socceroo midfielder Ahmad Elrich says
he expects his client to complete a move to English
Premier League side Fulham in 'the next few days'.
Elrich has apparently impressed Fulham boss Chris
Coleman enough to persuade the London club to end his
nightmare in Korea, with skysports.com reporting Fulham
will pay Busan I'Park (formerly Icons) around £500,000
(AUS$1.2million) for the player.
"Fulham like what they have seen and Ahmad is
very happy," Elrich's agent Dean Sheehan said.
"We are now waiting for the two clubs just to
agree terms and we hope that should be done within the
next few days."
Newspaper reports had previously suggested Elrich
may move to Blackburn, but Sheehan said Fulham had acted
swiftly to try to sign his client.
"To suggest Blackburn have been snubbed is not
true," he said. "Fulham merely got there first
and thus have first option on Ahmad, it is that simple."
