Milan consider Taarabt

Jol confirmed the mercurial Moroccan is due to undergo a medical on Tuesday morning ahead of a move to Craven Cottage.

He said: “We have agreed everything with the club. The only thing is the medical. If that is sound and good then he will join us.”

The Dutchman confirmed the news at the post-match press conference following his side's productive pre-season stalemate with the La Liga side.

Steve Sidwell had put the hosts ahead on 13 minutes, but Nigerian attacking midfielder Nosa Igiebor levelled the contest eight minutes into the second period.

Bryan Ruiz had a penalty claim turned down for a trip before Hugo Rodallega's effort was chalked off for offside to leave the scores level.

Giorgos Karagounis almost won it late on for the Londoners, but was denied from distance by former Premier League keeper Stephan Andersen.

Fulham will play their final pre-season friendly against Parma on Saturday before the start of the Barclays Premier League season.
