Roy Hodgson admitted today that Fulham’s proposed deal to bring Stefano Chuka Okaka to London is still in some jeopardy.

It appeared positive yesterday with Okaka’s agent suggesting that the deal was almost done. Hodgson wants to make sure that the forward really wants to move to London – and confirmed that it would only a be a loan deal, with no chance of the Cottagers holding an option to make it permanent.

I would be disappointed should this one fall through. Fulham badly need cover up front, especially with Bobby Zamora’s injury looking worse than originally feared. You can read the rest of the story here.
