It only seems like a day or so ago that we were reporting that the deal to bring Derek Boateng to Craven Cottage was all but done.
However, we`re now finding out that all is not quite what it seems.
Reports are surfacing that Boateng`s relationship with Dnipro (Ukraine) isn`t what it should be. His club is claiming that Boateng has gone AWOL and that any transfer talks for the 29 year-old are being held without their permission.
Or is this simply a ruse to extract a few more quid out of our coffers!
