It looks as though John Pantsil will face Chelsea on 28 December after an agreement between Fulham and the Ghana FA allowing the right back to play at Stamford Bridge.

Pantsil will line-up for Fulham in their local derby and then fly out to South Africa to join a national team training camp ahead of the African Nations Cup.

We have reached a decent agreement for Pantsil to play in the Chelsea and immediately after the game he will fly to South Africa.

Fulham have expressed their contrition to their previous statement and we are reasonable people.

We took into consideration the career of the player and out future relationship with the club.
