Riise set for Fulham

Italian giants Roma have sold John Arne Riise to Fulham on Thursday, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The Giallorossi have apparently accepted a €2.6m offer for the Norwegian international defender.

The left-back, who joined Roma from Liverpool in 2008, spent seven years in England with the Anfield outfit.

Riise only has one-year left on his Stadio Olimpico contract and he doesn't seem to figure in the future plans of the outfit.

Fulham, now bossed by Martin Jol, already have Riise's brother at the club – Bjorn Helge.
