Fulham are lining up a loan deal for Celta Vigo midfielder Okay Yokuslu, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper Faro de Vigo reports claims that Fulham have emerged as strong favourites to sign the Turkish international with the deal containing a compulsory option to buy should the Whites seal promotion to the Premier League this year. Yokuslu, who made sixteen appearances during an impressive loan spell at West Brom last season, is apparently open to a return to England.

Celta, who are eager to try and recoup as much of the £5.4m they paid Trabzonspor for Yokuslu in 2018, are open to negotiating a deal during January. Fulham might well be seeking midfield reinforcements next month with Jean Michael Seri heading to the Africa Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast and a raft of recent postponements creating a packed schedule. The 27 year-old has played just six league games for Celta so far this season.
