Jack Grimmer: Fulham move too good to turn down
Fulham new boy Jack Grimmer admits the opportunity to move to Craven Cottage was too good to turn down.
Grimmer joined Fulham from Aberdeen during the January transfer window after deciding to leave Pittodrie.
The midfielder, who became the youngest player ever to play for the club at the age of 16, believes he can improve as a player at Fulham.
"I had to take all things into consideration," Grimmer told the club's official website. "And I just didn't think I could pass up the opportunity of training with some of the best players around and being taught by coaches who have been there and done it all, which is what's happening at Fulham.
The 18-year-old has quickly established himself in the Fulham Development Squad and he is enjoying his early experiences at the west London club.
"I consider myself lucky to have come in and already played for the Development Squad in the short time that I've been here," added Grimmer.
"It was expressed to me before I signed that if I did my thing and worked hard then I'll get my chance.
"It was a big deal to me because you don't come to a club where you've never got a chance of playing for the first team so that was a big factor [in signing]."
