Fulham have made a dramatic late move for Wigan’s United States left-back Antonee Robinson.

The star saw a dream switch to AC Milan scuppered in January at the last-minute.

Now he is on the verge of securing a transfer to the Premier League.

Scott Parker’s top-flight new boys are willing to pay the fixed fee of around £1.5 million for Robinson.

And they are offering better terms than rivals Sheffield United and West Brom.

Robinson would have to compete with play-off final hero Joe Bryan for a start in the top-flight but the door is open for that challenge.

They hope to talk him into joining in the next 48 hours.

Baggies were the favourites before the Blades agreed a fee.

But Fulham’s personal terms may beat both in the chase.

Robinson, who was sweet talked into joining Milan by legend Paolo Maldini, found out his transfer was off just hours after touching down in Italy eight months ago.

Milan had proposed a loan deal at first ahead of a deal worth up to £10million.

The Latics owners then demanded that the £10million was paid up front rather than in instalments.

He made 39 appearances for the Latics last season, scoring one goal.

He went on to suffer relegation from the Championship with Wigan after they were hit with a 12-point deduction.

Wigan need to sell players with the club in administration - to pay wages and football creditors - and administrators have set a deadline of August 31 for a sale to be agreed for the Sky Bet League One club.
