Fulham are closing in on a three-year deal for Melbourne Victory defender Adrian Leijer, according to the Australian club.

The reigning A-League young player of the year had an unsuccessful trial with Everton as a youngster but has impressed at the Victory at centre-back over the last two years.

"We received an offer from Fulham on Monday morning and the negotiations are progressing quite well," said Victory´s football operations manager Gary Cole. "The deal hasn´t been concluded yet, it is obviously a commercial negotiation between the two clubs, but I think we are pretty close."
