Okaka to join Fulham on Monday
Wednesday 13 January 2010
Stefano Okaka's agent has confirmed the Roma striker will be on his way to Fulham on Monday.
The 20-year-old was set to join the Cottagers this week after Roma and Fulham reached an agreement for the player to move to the London outfit on a six-month loan deal.
However, the move was delayed due to the Italy Under-21 striker having yet to finalise terms with the Barclays Premier League outfit.
"Everything is okay," said Okaka's agent Domenico Scopelliti to tuttomercatoweb.com.
"Fulham wants the lad and Okaka wants Fulham. On Monday he will fly to London.
"There have been no problems regarding the financial aspect with Fulham.
"The only delay has been due to a fax or an email that we were supposed to receive.
"Okaka will join Fulham for six months with an option that Fulham can exercise to extend the loan deal for a further 12 months.
"This was crucial as it would allow the player more time to adapt."
Fulham are looking to reinforce their attack with Bobby Zamora currently sidelined through injury.
Okaka has made six league appearances for Claudio Ranieri's side this season and is under contract with the Serie A club until June 2012.
