Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan is having a medical at Fulham this morning, according to Sky sources.
The Whites have agreed a deal to sign the 24-year-old.
Bryan was close to joining Aston Villa on Wednesday - where he was set to do a medical - but he is understood to prefer a move to the Premier League.
Sky reported on Monday that Bristol City had accepted a bid of £6m from Villa for Bryan, who was a standout performer in last year's Championship.
