Fulham striker Moussa Dembele is closing in on a first-team return as he battles back from a hamstring injury.

The highly-rated 17-year-old sustained the problem on his senior debut against West Ham earlier this month.

However, Dembele, who has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United, is nearing full fitness.

Boss Rene Meulensteen said: "I was devastated at West Ham when he got injured.

"He pulled his hamstring. He's close to coming back and I'm looking forward to integrating him into the first-team squad.

"He's a goalscorer and certainly knows where the net is. He's clinical in and around the box and is a good athlete."
