One That Got Away

One That Got Away

Reports that filtered through early yesterday evening infer that Fulham nearly acquired another goalkeeper.

Apparently, Maarten Stekelenburg was on his way to London to discuss personal terms and undertake a medical with AS Roma having agreed a price with Fulham.

But, with the keeper aboard a plane, some 35,000 feet in the air, AS Roam suddenly realised that by the time they`d decided Stekelenburg could leave the realisation hit home, that with the Italian transfer window closing at 18:00 hours, they`d not have time to sign a replacement.

Therefore, the plug was pulled on the deal with the Dutch keeper totally oblivious to what was going on.
