Erik Nevland could make his Fulham debut in the Barclays Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Among Roy Hodgson’s other January signings, Paul Stalteri has a dead leg, Jari Litmanen is not match-fit and Eddie Johnson is returning from America and could be jet-lagged.
Brian McBride is back in full training but will need assessment before a decision is made whether he plays. Kasey Keller is also back in full training.
Provisional squad: Niemi, Volz, Konchesky, Hangeland, Hughes, Andreasen, Bocanegra, Stefanovic, Seol, Healy, Smertin, Bullard, Murphy, Davies, Dempsey, Baird, Brown, Milsom, Leijer, McBride, Nevland, Keller.
