Fulham are pushing to sign Zulte-Waregem midfielder Junior Malanda.

The Daily Mail says Fulham have met Zulte-Waregem's near-£5million valuation on Malanda, 18.

Fulham have offered £3.4m up front with the rest to follow in instalments but Malanda has returned to Belgium, following talks in London, and Waregem are keen to keep him for the rest of the season.
