Hugo Rodallega: Confirmed as a Fulham player

Fulham have confirmed the free transfer signing of Hugo Rodallega on a three-year contract, subject to a work permit.

The 26-year-old forward had been out-of-contract since leaving Wigan at the end of the season, and Sky Sports had already revealed a move to Craven Cottage was imminent.

Speaking at the club's training ground on Thursday, the Colombia international told Fulham's official website: "I'm thrilled to have signed for Fulham Football Club.

"I wanted to stay in England and I'm delighted that I now have this opportunity with Fulham.

"I would like to thank the staff and fans of Wigan Athletic for three and a half wonderful seasons there.

"I'm looking forward to pre-season training with the rest of the Fulham squad and starting a new chapter in my career."

Fulham boss Martin Jol, added: "I am delighted that Hugo has decided to join Fulham.

"There has been a lot of interest in him from other top flight teams in England and abroad, so to be able to add his quality to our squad is a massive boost this early in our preparations for the new campaign.

"He is a great addition and I think he will contribute very well to our style and philosophy here."
