According to TalkSport, former Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb is not training at Motspur Park and is not about to join the club.
Reports were suggesting that Martin Jol was keeping a very close eye on the Belarussian and after Barcelona terminated his contract in January, invited him to train with the Cottagers ahead of a possible move.
A source, however, is suggesting that it simply not the case, and a move to Russia is more likely.
"He has been released by Barcelona but is not training at Fulham," said the source.
"The transfer window is closed in England, but there are other countries where it is now open. There is likely to be a solution until July and it will go from there."
