Bernd Leno has signed for Fulham from Arsenal for a reported £8m fee on a three-year deal.
The Cottager announced: “The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Bernd Leno from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee.
“The 30-year-old goalkeeper has agreed terms on a three-year deal, with a Club option to extend by a further 12 months.
“Manuel Neuer’s stranglehold on the national team’s No.1 jersey has meant opportunities for other German goalkeepers has been limited over the years, but Leno has still represented his country on nine occasions, and was in the squad for last summer’s European Championship.”
Speaking to FFCtv, Leno said: “It feels amazing to finally be here. I can’t wait to join the team, to train and play with the team.
“I’m relieved that everything is done. I’m just happy to be here. It took a little bit of time but in the end we made it, and that’s the most important thing.”
Tony Khan added: “Bernd Leno is the goalkeeper whom we have pursued steadfastly throughout this transfer window, and we’re very excited that we’ve reached a transfer agreement and he’s now fully committed to Fulham!
“He has played at the highest level, and he’ll bring this experience and his leadership to our team. He’ll be a great addition to Marco’s squad, who are all excited for the season ahead! Come on Fulham!”
