Fulham have agreed a £3.8m deal to sign midfielder Neeskens Kebano from Genk.

It is understood the 24-year-old Congo international, who played for France at youth level, is due to fly to London to complete a medical and finalise personal terms.

The Whites are keen to land another central midfielder and Kebano is an industrious all-rounder with an eye for goal.

He scored 14 times in the Belgian top flight after a move from Paris Saint-Germain, where he was a trainee, to Charleroi in 2013.

Kebano has also scored four goals for 26 league appearances for Genk since joining last summer.

Neeskens Kebano will find an old acquaintance of the Pro League, at Fulham, in the person of Denis Odoi, who joined Fulham earlier this summer from Lokeren

Fulham Football Club statement
We are happy to be able to announce the signing of Neeskens Kebano on a three-year contract, with a Club option for an additional 12 months.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder, who can operate in a variety of roles, arrives from KRC Genk for an undisclosed fee.

Born in France, Kebano spent time at the illustrious Clairefontaine academy, where he attracted the attention of Paris Saint-Germain.

After some time with ASA Montereau, he joined the French giants’ youth setup in the summer of 2006.

After winning numerous trophies during his time in PSG’s academy, he made his first team debut at the age of 18 in 2010/11, and went on to appear in their UEFA Europa League campaign that season.

He spent a brief time on loan at Caen in 2012/13, and then joined Belgian outfit Charleroi at the end of the season on a permanent deal.

It was there where he began to capture his best form and, having scored regularly across his two seasons at the club, joined Genk in the summer of 2015, helping them to a fifth place finish in his solitary campaign with the side.

A French international from Under-17 to Under-20 level, he’s since switched his allegiance to the Democratic Republic of Congo, making his debut in October 2014.
