Antti Niemi has passed a medical at Fulham and is on the verge of completing his £1million-plus move from Coca-Cola Championship side Southampton.

The 33-year-old Finnish goalkeeper is set to be unveiled as Fulham´s new number one by Cottagers manager Chris Coleman.

"We´re nearly there," Niemi´s agent Richard Cody told PA Sport. "All being well it will be completed by Tuesday afternoon."
