Fulham boss Martin Jol has hinted a deal is close for Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta.

Jol has confirmed his interest in Bosman prospect Amorebieta.

Asked if the defender was one of the 'five or six' signings he has earmarked for the summer, Jol said: "That is one of the pieces of speculation. You are not hot or cold, you are warm."
