Lawrie Sanchez has confirmed Fulham are intending to hand a trial to South Korea international Song Chong-gug.

The full back seems set to move on from K-League club Suwon Samsung Bluewings when his contract expires later this month and he is set to be handed the chance to win a move to Fulham in January

“If he is ready, he will have a trial,” Sanchez told Seoul daily Sports Khan of the former Feyenoord man.

“The report that Fulham have offered Song Chung-guk a trial is correct. We have been in contact with his agent and we hope to have a trial next week.

“We are thinking about signing a full back during the winter transfer window and Song Chong-guk could fit the bill.

“The faster he has a trial the better. It will be good if he comes to England soon.”

Sanchez’s Fulham are mired in trouble at the foot of the table and he is keen to draw a line under 2007.

“Get rid of 2007 and roll on 2008,” he said after the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.

“It’s all very disappointing for the 25,000 or so Fulham fans at the game, the team and me.

“You tell me how we’ve lost that game? I guess that’s why people come to football but it can be very cruel at times.”
