Fulham will confirm a £6.3m transfer for Israeli winger Manor Solomon this summer after snapping up Shakhtar Donetsk star who fled Ukraine last month after Russia's invasion

Fulham will finalise a £6.3million deal for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon when the summer transfer window opens.

Shakhtar have also negotiated a 15 per cent sell-on clause as part of the transfer fee for the 22-year-old, who is expected to sign a five-year contract.

The Israeli was forced to flee from his home in Kyiv last month amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine and made a harrowing 25-hour journey across the border to safety in neighbouring Poland.

The Cottagers, under Marco Silva, are almost certain to get promoted to the Premier League

Like many Shakhtar players he has been allowed to leave with football in the country suspended indefinitely, and his representatives Shlomy Ben Ezra and Pini Zahavi have been quick to find him a new home with Fulham.
