Fulham close in on South African Dikgacoi

Premier League Fulham
by Pranav Soneji (U5268639) 27 December 2008
comment on the article

South Africa midfielder Kagiso Dikgacoi says he is close to a move to Craven Cottage.

The Golden Arrows player almost joined the club in the summer, but the move broke down when a work permit application was rejected by the Home Office.

But Dikgacoi is hoping it will be second time lucky when the transfer window opens in January.

So what are your thoughts about this move? Who else should Roy Hodgson be targeting next month?

Not sure Fulham will need this guy... We already have Etuhu, Andranik and Andreasen backing up Murphy and Bullard, with Dempsey and Gera capable of covering in the middle of the park. Dikgacoi arriving must surely mean the end for one of Etuhu, Andranik or Andreasen?..

I think that it'll be Andreasen, which is a hugh shame as i really rate him. I don't see where Andranik fits into our team and i do feel that we need a defensive midfielder to bolster the midfield so we can close off games. There is no way that Roy will drop Murphy as he is excellent for us, giving us a great passer in the middle of the pitch. Danny has always been a great talent and is continuing to do so for us. Another player I don't understand is Etuhu. Although I haven't seen a lot of him, I think he's a bit lightweight for the Prem. We need a big, strong midfielder to put in some crunching tackles, especially on that plum sack, Ronaldo. Diop was trying to play that position but to be honest he was totally useless and not worthy of a 1st team place. Lets buy a hard nut!!

murphy wont be dropped, fantastic player but maybe this boy is a player who we will see the best of next season .... wont be a huge blow if bullard leaves but i really cant see him going ... prefer andreasen than andranik and etutu combined !

I really can't see why we are signing another centre midfielder. I don't think that Roy will get rid of any of the current set of midfielders apart from maybe Bullard but I don't think this lad would be a suitable replacement but I trust Roy and if he thinks that this guy can cut it then why not sign him.

Modise would be a better signing if you wanted a South African

Etuhu is a big lad Pallsy...did you see the Spurs game...he slotted in behind Murphy - who is clearly our best midfeilder by a country mile right now and all season for that matter.

I'd just like to apologise for my comment on replacing Danny Murphy. I haven't got the faintest idea why I said that.
I don't know why we need an untested midfielder.

I still can't see why Etuhu is in the team. I thought that he was terrible against Chelski.

I don't think he was terrible...this was his first start for Fulham since we bought him. He's a different player to Bullard of course. He's not to be considered a replacement by any stretch. He's the holding MF we have all craved for. Another option I feel. I must agree without Jimmy in the MF we struggled to create as much, Chelsea match was proof of this.
