Italian club Roma have confirmed that Dutch goalkeeper Maareten Stekelenburg will be moving to Fulham.

Roma’s Sporting Director Franco Baldini has said that he was in London last week to confirm the deal according to Sky Sports.

“I went to London for the sale of Stekelenburg at Fulham,” said Baldini.

The Dutch goalkeeper has been strongly linked with a move to Fulhan since January when the London based club just missed out on the goalkeeper.

It now appears they have succeeded in their bid and are set to sign Stekelenburg for just over £4 million.

The Dutch goalkeeper will hope that his fortunes change with a move to London.

While at Roma, the 30 year old has lost his place in goal with the Dutch national team, being replaced by Ajax’s Kenneth Vermeer.

Roma have apparently already lined up a replacement for the Dutchman, with Santos goalkeeper Rafael set to be brought to the Italian capital.

While in London, Baldini was asked about the availability of midfielder Danniele De Rossi who has been strongly linked with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.

The former England assistant manager said he did not hold talks with any club about the Italian international.
