Cottagers close on Greening

19 Aug 2009 - 12:47:26

West Bromwich Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo has revealed that Fulham are closing in on the signing of Jonathan Greening.

Di Matteo left his captain out of Tuesday night's 3-2 win at Peterborough United as the two clubs are in advanced negotiations over a fee for the former Manchester United and Middlesbrough midfielder.

Greening handed in a transfer request last month after Fulham had a £4million bid for his services turned down.

"Basically the two clubs are negotiating," Di Matteo told his club's official website.

"His team-mates are fighting for a cause. I didn't feel it was right for him to be involved last night.

"He's been a great professional for us. I spoke to him before the game.

"There has been a lot going on for him in the last five or six weeks but, once again, I have to emphasise he's been very good for us.

"He's been a true professional and it was my decision to pull him out last night."
