Cousin: Set for Fulham talks
Fulham have had a £3million bid accepted by Rangers for Daniel Cousin.
As revealed by skysports.com on Monday Fulham made their move for Cousin by tabling a bid in the region of £2million for the powerful forward.
Rangers rejected Fulham's initial offer, but the Craven Cottage outfit have upped their bid to £3million which the Scottish club have reluctantly accepted.
Fulham turned their attention to Cousin after seeing a move for Watford's Marlon King stall.
Cousin, who arrived at Ibrox in the summer from Lens, has previously intimated his desire to try his luck in England and Fulham are now ready to grant him his wish.
The 30-year-old is now set to travel to London for talks with Fulham and undergo a medical ahead of his proposed move to the Premier League.
A club statement from Rangers read: "Rangers have accepted an offer from Fulham to sell Daniel Cousin and the striker is now on his way to London to discuss personal terms.
"The Cottagers made a move last night for the 30-year-old Gabon international
which was rejected by Rangers.
"Fulham then came back in again today with an improved offer and this was
accepted by the club."
