Fulham are reportedly poised to finalise the signing of Rotherham United midfielder Ben Pringle on a free transfer in the next few days.

The 26 year-old announced that he would be leaving the Millers in May at the end of his current contract having turned down a new deal to extend a successful four-year spell at the New York Stadium. Pringle had helped Rotherham to back-to-back promotions, scoring a key penalty in their shoot-out win over Leyton Orient at Wembley last May in the League One play-off final, and was one of the club’s outstanding performers as Steve Evans’ side beat the drop this season.

Pringle, who had turned down a move to Millwall during the January transfer window, had been linked with a number of Championship sides including Bolton Wanderers, Leeds United, Charlton and Ipswich. Last Friday, the South London Press claimed that Fulham were in pole position to capture Pringle’s signature and also reported that the Addicks had dropped out of the race as they were unable to match the wage package that their London rivals were offering.
