Fulham boss Roy Hodgson remains hopeful the club will be able to conclude a deal to sign Andy Johnson.

"I think so. I've no reason to believe it won't."

A fee was agreed with Everton for Johnson, although The Cottagers are renegotiating the terms of payment due to an old knee injury.

Hodgson has confirmed talks with The Toffees remain ongoing, but he has not spoken with Fulham officials to ascertain the latest situation.

"I think the situation is still ongoing. The transfer negotiations are still going on as far as I know," Hodgson told Sky Sports News.

Negotiations

"I haven't spoken to the chief executive today (Saturday) so I can't tell you more than that. He's the one negotiating with Everton."

When asked if Johnson will sign for Fulham this summer, Hodgson replied: "I think so. I've no reason to believe he won't."

Johnson has won eight caps for England and Hodgson believes the striker will bring undoubted quality to Craven Cottage.

"Andy Johnson is a player with great quality. Wherever he's been he's done very, very well," Hodgson added.

"He'll give us balance up front that we're looking for."
