Werder Bremen defender Leon Andreasen says he is ready for a 'new challenge' as he closes in on a move to Fulham.

The Denmark international is discussing a £3million switch to Craven Cottage and is expected to sign a three-year contract.

"I am looking forward to a new challenge," said Andreasen in Bild.

"The desire for a change has been with me since the summer."

Bremen's sporting director Klaus Allofs has confirmed that the German side have accepted Fulham's offer for the 24-year-old.

Allofs said: "The offer was attractive and Leon is not happy with us."
