Fulham are edging closer to signing Junior Malanda.

The Daily Mail says Malanda is on the brink of joining Fulham after holding talks with them on Thursday and receiving confirmation that Zulte Waregem have given up trying to hold him to a contract he broke under a Belgian labour law.

The Belgian side submitted their official squad for the Champions' League and omitted Malanda who could sign for less than £500,000 compensation.
