According to the Express & Star, Fulham have agreed a fee with Wolverhampton Wanderers over the signing of midfielder Kevin McDonald.

The report claims that the player was absent from Wolves’ behind-closed-doors friendly on Saturday as a deal draws closer, although the amount of the potential fee is unknown.

McDonald endured a tough time at Molineux last term, starting off well before falling out of the side towards the end of the campaign as boss Kenny Jackett looked to shake things up a little.

The former Burnley man has been linked with the West London club before, yet a proposed move to Fulham last summer fell through as Wolves refused to budge on their value of the player.

The Cottagers were disappointing last season in the Championship, flirting with relegation for much of the campaign and having one of the poorest away records in the league.

That said, they still boast a fairly strong squad and adding McDonald to the mix could see them become more competitive in midfield.

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett seemingly wants the Scot to stick around at Molineux, yet without the guarantees of first-team football the midfielder may feel he has better prospects in the capital with Fulham.

The report goes on to say that negotiations are at an advanced stage and a deal is expected to happen sooner rather than later.
