Get West London understands that a deal for Fulham to sign Porto left-back Rafa Soares on loan is all but done.

The young Portuguese emerged as a rumoured Whites target earlier this week and it appears that a season-long loan deal has been completed between the two parties.

Soares is understood to have arrived in London to have put the finishing touches to the move to the capital today, although we are not yet sure whether a medical has been completed.

Talk of Shahid Khan selling Fulham is rubbish

The 22-year-old has been with the Portuguese giants since youth level and has spent the majority of time in the B side, while also having loan spells with Academica and Rio Ave.

He has played for all of Portugal's age groups from U16 right through to U21 level. He was linked with Liverpool earlier in the summer, but a move never materialised and now Slavisa Jokanovic will benefit from his qualities.
