Fulham agree fee for Championship striker

Fulham have this evening agreed a fee for Watford striker Marlon King of around £5 million with Fulham striker Collins John going the other way on a loan deal.

Fulham have had numerous bids rejected for King in recent weeks after Roy Hodgson signalling him out as one of his main transfer targets.

King has been a star player for Watford for many years now and he unfortunately picked up a serious injury near the beginning of Watford's relegation season from the Premier League last season.

King has so far scored 11 goals this season for Aidy Boothroyd's side and it is no surprise to see Fulham holding a keen interest in him. I really can see King being a real success in the top league in England. He is terrific goalscorer and I predict he will help Fulham survive the drop this season.

Fulham striker Collins John goes in the opposite direction on loan for the rest of the season. The Dutch striker has already played on loan in the Championship this season with Leicester City and scored twice.
