Republic of Ireland winger due in London on Saturday

Sky Sports News understands Newcastle winger Damien Duff is due in London on Saturday to finalise his move to Fulham. The Republic of Ireland international has been the subject of talks between the two clubs after the Cottagers made a reported £4million bid. Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed his interest in Duff, who he worked with at former club Blackburn, as he looks to add depth to his midfield. The ex-Chelsea player is said to be keen on a move back to London and it is hoped that a deal will be completed at some point over the weekend. Fulham are eager to add numbers to their squad as they will prepare to balance domestic participation with competing in the Europa League.
