Levante defender set for move

Parker delighted as Fulham down Rovers.

Levante defender Jose Manuel Rodríguez Benitoas looks set for a move away from the club as he is being linked to Scott Parker’s Fulham.

According to reports in Spain, Fulham have already made contact with the club and have opened talks over a move for the player who struggles for first-team action in Paco Lopez’s side.

Representatives have let it be known that Chema is keen on a move to England because he thinks it will benefit his career, despite the fact that Fulham were relegated from the English top flight last season and are now in the Championship.

Chema is still under contract with the Valencia-based side and Levante will be looking for a fee for his services.
