Fulham have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Czech Republic goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny.

The 25-year-old has emerged as a target for Whites boss Chris Coleman and is set to move from Panionios in the summer.

Reports in Greece have claimed that terms have already been agreed for the shot-stopper to move to Craven Cottage in the summer.

Panionios have blocked Drobny from moving during the transfer window as they do not want to leave themselves short in the goalkeeping department following the exit of Sorin Colceag.

But they have no qualms in sanctioning Drobny’s departure in the summer, with the keeper taking experience of the Uefa Cup with him to West London.

Coleman has moved for Drobny, despite the upbeat news of Edwin van der Sar agreeing a new contract with The Cottagers.

Van der Sar’s decision, though, could cast a cloud over Mark Crossley’s future with the Premiership club and Drobny would provide valuable cover for the Dutchman.

Fulham have also been negotiating a deal for Portuguese shot-stopper Ricardo Baptista, although the teenager is unlikely to be deemed ready for top flight straight away.
