Fulham closing in on Greening

West Bromwich Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo has revealed that Fulham are closing in on the signing of Jonathan Greening.

Di Matteo left his captain out of Tuesday night’s 3-2 win at Peterborough United as the two clubs are in advanced negotiations over a fee for the former Manchester United and Middlesbrough midfielder.

Greening handed in a transfer request last month after Fulham had a £4million bid for his services turned down.

“Basically the two clubs are negotiating,” Di Matteo told his club’s official website.

“His team-mates are fighting for a cause. I didn’t feel it was right for him to be involved last night.

“He’s been a great professional for us. I spoke to him before the game.

“There has been a lot going on for him in the last five or six weeks but, once again, I have to emphasise he’s been very good for us.

“He’s been a true professional and it was my decision to pull him out last night.”
