The other Riise to join Fulham?

Recommended Posts


Norway international midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise is set to complete a move to Fulham for a reported £2m.

The 26-year-old younger brother of former Liverpool left-back John Arne has held talks with the Premier League side and had a medical on Monday.

The younger Riise, who has won 16 international caps, was due to join Cardiff in 2003 but the move fell through and he moved to Standard Liege.

He switched to FC Brussels after just a season and is currently at Lillestrom.

A Fulham statement said: "Norwegian midfield player Bjorn Helge Riise has travelled to London for talks with the club and is currently undergoing a medical examination.

"This process is not due to be completed until late on Tuesday evening."

Riise, who has spent the last five years at Lillestrom, is set to become Fulham's second summer signing following the capture of right-back Stephen Kelly from Birmingham.
