Reports in Norway have denied claims that Fulham are the club poised to sign Molde's highly-rated central defender Vegard Forren.
Molde boss and former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed on Thursday that the 24-year-old stopper had not travelled to link up with the Norway national squad in January ahead of friendlies against South Africa and Zambia as he was in talks to leave.
Solskjaer stopped short of confirming which club were poised to sign Forren, who has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, claiming 'it is not quite finished yet, so I will not comment further'.
However reports later on Thursday claimed that Fulham is the club close to striking a deal for the player, who has formed a strong partnership with current Cottagers defender Brede Hangeland in the heart of the Norway backline.
But Norwegian sports website RBNett has now reported that a major European club are indeed in the latter stages of negotiations with Molde, but that Fulham are not that club.
