Jonathan Greening says he’s beginning to put his transfer hell behind him and is getting used to how Fulham play. The midfielder, on loan from West Brom and expected to complete a £5m transfer at the end of the season, now wants to help his new side climb the table.

Roy Hodgson targeted the West Brom skipper as a potential new recruit before the end of last season but had four close-season bids rejected by the Baggies. Fulham eventually signed Greening on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal and the former Middlesbrough man is finally making an impact with the Cottagers.

It was a difficult summer and went on for 10 weeks, from the end of the season until I moved. It would have been nice to come for pre-season at Fulham but it wasn’t to be.

The more you play with your team-mates, then the more you learn. I know I have to keep working hard. Now our main focus is to push up the table as quickly as possible.
