Sevilla keeper nears Fulham switch

Fulham are expected to complete a deal to bring Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico to Craven Cottage before the English transfer window closes.

According to AS, the Premier League new boys are close to agreeing a season-long loan arrangement for the 24-year-old, with the Andalusians happy to let Rico depart the Sanchez Pizjuan following the recent capture of Tomas Vaclik from Basel.

Sevilla-born Rico is a two-time Europa League winner and has made 114 La Liga appearances for his hometown club, including 40 in all competitions last term.
