Gudjohnsen closes in on Fulham deal

Mark Hughes has revealed Eidur Gudjohnsen is on course to secure a permanent contract at Fulham.

The 32-year-old Iceland striker joined the west London side last month on loan until the end of the season but has since been limited to two substitute appearances.

"There will be chances for him between now and the end of the season," Hughes said. "If he continues the way he has been in training, I'm sure there will be conversations to be had."
