Albion winger Anthony Knockaert is moving closer to joining Fulham.

The clubs are on the verge of agreeing a fee for the Frenchman, The Argus understands.

Knockaert will not be involved in tomorrow's friendly for the Seagulls against Fulham at Aldershot (3pm).

The Argus confirmed a report last weekend in The Sun which said Fulham had made contact with Albion.

Their interest has now progressed to the point where a switch to the banks of the River Thames and return to the Championship for Knockaert seems increasingly likely, subject also to personal terms being agreed and medical clearance.

Knockaert has scored five goals in 63 Premier League appearances for Albion since helping them to promotion and being named Championship player of the year.
