Wigan defender Antonee Robinson has travelled to London for a medical ahead of his proposed move to Fulham.

The newly-promoted Premier League side have agreed personal terms with the American international full-back, with various reports placing the size of the 23 year old’s proposed wage package at between £45,000 and £50,000 a week. Fulham’s substantial offer has beaten off competition from Everton, who were keen for their former youngster to return to Goodison Park, and Sheffield United, who had previously been described as front runners for Robinson’s signature.

Robinson saw a dream move to AC Milan collapse because of a heart problem, but the defender return to action with Wigan in June and that is not expected to be an issue in his forthcoming Fulham medical. The attack minded full-back, who is poised to become Scott Parker’s first signing of the summer, will have to displace Joe Bryan, whose brilliant brace against Brentford won promotion at Wembley earlier this month, from the Fulham starting line-up.
