Futbol Arena claim Turkish Super Lig club Yeni Malatyaspor are close to signing Fulham attacker Aboubakar Kamara.

It’s reported the Turkish club have made ‘significant progress’ to loan the 23 year old and a couple of minor details are left to complete the deal.

The Turkish website report Yeni Malatyaspor will hold one final meeting with Fulham to bring in the player and are hopeful they can announce his arrival soon.

Ryan Babel’s transfer to Fulham has reportedly opened the way for Malatyaspor to complete a deal for the French attacker as he’s now likely to drop down the pecking order under Claudio Ranieri.

Recently the forward was criticised by the Fulham boss after he went against team orders and took a penalty against Huddersfield Town.

Kamara joined Fulham from French club Amiens for €6m and is under contract at Craven Cottage until 2021.

The former AS Monaco player has featured in 13 Premier League games this season, scoring 3 goals.
