Spurs set to complete signing of French striker

Fulham striker Moussa Dembele is undergoing a medical at Tottenham and is expected to complete his move to White Hart Lane.

Under the terms of the deal, the teenager is set to stay with the Championship strugglers for the remainder of the current campaign before joining Spurs in the summer.

Mauricio Pochettino has been searching for another striker to ease the burden on Harry Kane and has cash to spare after selling Andros Townsend to Newcastle for £12million.

Dembele joined Fulham from Paris St Germain in 2012 and has scored 11 goals all in competitions this season but his contract at Craven Cottage is due to expire in the summer.

The deal could cause some degree of confusion as it comes just one day after unrelated midfielder Mousa Dembele signed a new three-year deal with the London club.

Fulham close on new boss as Gray takes training

Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray took training at managerless Fulham on Monday, Press Association Sport understands.

It is nearly a month since the west Londoners sacked Kit Symons, having grown frustrated by their inconsistent Championship form during his tenure.

However, the process to replace him has been fraught with challenges, having initially agreed terms with Steve Clarke only for the then-Reading manager to pull out.

Birmingham manager Gary Rowett and Rangers boss Mark Warburton were others to be sounded out, but now Fulham's chief football officer Mike Rigg belatedly appears close to naming Symons' successor.

Gray has been considered for a role overseeing coaching at the Cottagers or as their new manager, with the former Wednesday, Southampton and Northampton boss understood to have taken training on Monday.

Curbishley: Fulham job is an attractive proposition

Former Charlton Athletic and West Ham manager Alan Curbishley has refused to rule himself out of the running of the Fulham job.

Curbishley, who hasn't managed a club since 2008, has recently acted as an adviser for ex-Fulham boss Kit Symons.

It's up to other people. They need to think about what kind of manager they wan.

It is an attractive job and I'm sure there are going to be lots of people who will be applying. I won two promotions (with Charlton) and I've been in the play-offs before.

With the top two at the moment on 30-odd points, it is a big haul to catch them. Fulham have got a side which could, on its day, beat anyone 4-0. But they could get beaten 4-0. Whoever comes in has got to try and change that a little bit.

You have got to get the results. That was why it was a galling situation at the weekend for Fulham, because if we had beaten Birmingham we would have gone two points behind them. It is difficult, but it can be done.

Charlton dramatically rescued a point with a stoppage-time equaliser in a 2-2 draw at home to London rivals Fulham.

In what was a strangely uncompetitive affair until the final 10 minutes between two teams bereft of confidence, Fulham appeared destined for victory after taking the lead through goals from Ryan Tunnicliffe and Ross McCormack.

However, Charlton captain Johnnie Jackson, on as a substitute, inspired an unlikely comeback by scoring with his first touch before Jordan Cousins headed home their second.
