Valencia right-back Martín Montoya has reportedly landed in London to complete his move to Fulham.
Outlet Estádio Deportivo claims they were informed that the player ‘would have arrived’ in the English capital ahead of his move to the Whites.
Even though the conditions of the Fulham deal are not clear, the report says that the Spaniard is now ready to have his medical with the West London side.
Fulham’s first option for the right-back position was the Celta de Vigo player Hugo Mallo, Estádio Deportivo says. However, as the player is currently working on his contract renewal with the club, the Cottagers have chosen to go for Montoya instead.
The 27-year-old was expected to stay at Valencia this season, but the attempt from Fulham has changed both player and the club plans.
Other Premier League sides such as Brighton and Southampton were also interested in the former Barcelona player, but it’s Fulham who are said to have won the race.
