Premier League club Fulham, who were promoted to the top flight at end of last term, completed their fourth Deadline Day deal. The Cottagers saw Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah join them on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old impressed last season while plying his trade at Crystal Palace, and Fulham made sure they got the job done before the window shut down on Thursday.

Fulham had a busy transfer Deadline Day, as Fosu-Mensah finalised his switch to the club alongside the likes of Joe Bryan, Luciano Vietto, and Sergio Rico.

The EPL newcomers also agreed to sign Marseille midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa for a vital sum of £22.3 million.

Fosu-Mensah spoke to the club’s official website following the confirmation of the switch, stating: “I have a good feeling about the club. It has a nice history, it’s a nice club. Fulham has a lot of good players, and it’s good for my development to be here.”

“I spoke to the Manager and he gave me a good feeling. I’m happy to be here and I want to keep progressing,” the versatile defender added.

The Dutchman made 21 appearances in all competitions for Palace last term. Jose Mourinho will hope he gets the necessary games in order to come back and challenge for a place once Antonio Valencia leaves the club.

Fulham were one of the busiest clubs in this transfer window amongst all the Premier League clubs.

The likes of Jean Michael Seri, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Alfie Mawson arrived for significant fees, and players such as Andre Schurrle and Calum Chambers also joined the club on loan deals.
