Bjørn Helge Riise is confident that he will complete the final stages of his medical at Fulham and will be delighted to finalise his move to Craven Cottage by the end of the week.

The Norway international seems very excited about the prospect of making the move to the Premier League.

It will be a wonderful feeling to put my name on the contract. This is what I have worked for.

I have finished the most important tests on my knees, ankles and legs. On Wednesday I will go through a fitness test. But it is not something I am worried about.

This is a correct step for me. I look forward to seeing the team in qualifying for the Europa League.

He refused to discuss the terms of his contract with Fulham, but conceded he was ‘happy with it’.
