Fulham should learn at the start of next week whether FIFA will authorise Daniel Cousin's £3million transfer from Rangers.

FIFA have still to pass judgement on the case involving the 30-year-old Gabon striker.

Cousin played 20 minutes of a French league match before joining Rangers from Lens in August, and FIFA rules stipulate players cannot appear for three different clubs in the same season.

A FIFA spokesman said on Rangers' official website: "The outcome is still pending because the legal department have asked to see more documentation, especially from Fulham.

"They need more time to analyse everything and I don't think we will announce a verdict before Monday now."

If FIFA authorise the transfer, it will be allowed to go through despite the January window closing.
