Gudjohnsen to choose Fulham over Stoke

AS Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen is ready to sign with Fulham today.

The Mirror says Gudjohnsen is ready to sign for Mark Hughes’ Fulham on a year-long loan from Monaco today - after turning down Stoke City.

The far-travelled star chose to return to London for the season and team up with Hughes as he left a rival club disappointed for the second window running.

Gudjohnsen joined Tottenham in January despite being close to signing for West Ham - and his Fulham decision came hours after Stoke had closed in on a deal.

The Gudjohnsen camp were in talks with Potters boss Tony Pulis about a one-year loan deal - and paying £1.5million of his massive wages.

Monaco will let Gudjohnsen go after he returned to them following a spell with Spurs. They want a £2m contribution towards his salary and Fulham are understood to be willing to pay that.
