Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that he is hoping that a work permit would be granted for South Africa midfielder Kagiso Dikgacoi.
It is believed that the Cottagers have agreed a fee with the player’s club, Golden Arrows and are now awaiting a tribunal before Dikgacoi can sign.
Hodgson told reporters ahead of the Europa League qualifier against FK Vetra that Fulham have reached an agreement with the club for Kagiso but it will have to go to a tribunal because Fulham will have to apply for a work permit.
Kagiso Dikgacoi is 24 years old and he plays as a defensive midfielder. He also has 26 caps for South Africa and scored twice on the international stage.
Hodgson is also hopeful of keeping centre-back Brede Hangeland at the club.
