The transfer deal we’ve all been waiting for news of is, according to one news source, moving closer towards being completed.

According to the popular tabloid publication, the Daily Star, Fulham are close to doing a deal, with Newcastle United, for the signature of Aleksander Mitrovic.

The Serbian international spent a very successful loan spell with Fulham last season.

Joining the club in the January transfer window his skills saw Fulham embark on a club record number of games unbeaten with the player also netting a very respectable 12 goals in 20 games.

There were fears that with the World Cup giving numerous players the chance to put themselves in the showcase Mitrovic might attract the attention of several clubs from mainland Europe.

However, with Serbia cashing out in the group stages, those fears were as far as Mitrovic goes, never quite realised.

The striker is currently on a break following his World Cup exertions but is expected back at Newcastle next week.

Hopefully, the deal we’ve been waiting for all summer will be completed very soon.
