JOHN ARNE RIISE will take a medical in the coming week to seal his £4million move from Monaco to Fulham.

Riise stated "I have agreed personal terms with Fulham after meeting with their manager Jean Tigana and with my agents.

"The meeting was held in Tigana's house in Marseille and after just over an hour-and-a-half, we agreed on the personal deal.

"I am very satisfied with the terms, even though there are a few things that need to be sorted out.

"The medical will be in just over a week. The test will be done in London and that shouldn't be a problem.

"It was really nice to meet Tigana again," added Riise. "He is a really nice person, with lots of good humour just like he was when he brought me to Monaco.

"Tigana showed his faith in me and I was already a regular when I was aged 17 and 18.

"He has told me that he will give me a chance if I go to Fulham - which is important for a young player like me.

"The goal for next season will be to qualify for the UEFA Cup.

The club has shown it can reach its goals - the goal for last season was to get promoted to the Premier League, and that was achieved.
