Fulham still working on Sunderland's Etuhu deal

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson is still interested in signing Sunderland's Nigerian midfielder Dickson Etuhu despite a proposed swap deal with Northern Ireland striker David Healy breaking down.

Hodgson said: "We are still working on that deal.

"Although we've signed a lot of players this summer we've still got only a 21-man squad really - and we'll lose a lot of that to the internationals next week.

"We've not got players who play for England but so many who go all around the world when these international weeks come up. It takes a lot away from our training and preparation."
