Fulham boss Hughes must make quick decision on charismatic Ochoa

Fulham boss Mark Hughes will have to make a quick decision about incoming trialist Guillermo Ochoa.

Ochoa is having a trial with Fulham as Hughes eyes a long-term replacement for Mark Schwarzer, says the Daily Mail.

While bigger clubs have balked at a reported £9million price tag, Fulham are said to be closing in on a deal for the 6ft 1in No 1.

Ochoa, who has 40 caps but surprisingly played second fiddle at the World Cup finals this year, has already met up with compatriot Carlos Salcido in London.

Defender Salcido, 30, has impressed at Craven Cottage since joining from PSV Eindhoven in the summer and would help Ochoa adapt in west London.

If a deal isn't concluded quickly, he is expected back at Club America on Monday.
