Northern Ireland striker David Healy will sign for his former international manager Lawrie Sanchez at Fulham as soon as Leeds United are taken out of administration.

Healy is keen to link up again with Sanchez despite interest from Middlesbrough and Sunderland but Fulham have to wait until Leeds’ financial situation is resolved before they can complete a £1 million deal.

The 27-year-old is Northern Ireland’s record scorer and famously netted the winner in a World Cup qualifier against England in 2005.
