  • He has been allowed to leave with football in the country suspended indefinitely 

Fulham are close to finalising the £7million signing of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon for next season.

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.

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

Solomon, who is youngest Israeli player to score in the Champions League, has 28 caps for his country and can play on the left wing or behind the striker.

The 22-year old, who has also served in the Israeli armed forces, will fill the gap to be left by Fabio Carvalho’s departure from Fulham.

Carvalho is joining Liverpool for £5m with a further £2.7m in add ons and a future sell on clause.
