Arsenal defender Cedric Soares set to move to Fulham after breakthrough in transfer talks
The Cottagers have made a new right-back a priority this month and talks over the 31-year-old are at an advanced stage.
Cédric will be moving to Craven Cottage on a six month contract with no possibility of making it a permanent move.
Fulham manager Marco Silva worked with Cedric at Sporting and believes his experience and versatility will help the club build on their strong start to the season.
The 31-year-old, who will have a year left on his contract at Arsenal this summer, has slipped down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium this season.
Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu have starved the Portugal international of minutes and he should get more action at in-form Fulham, who sit seventh in the Premier League and host Sunderland in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
