SoccerNews in English Premier League 30 Aug 2008


Fulham said late Friday they had signed Nigerian international midfielder Dickson Etuhu from fellow English Premier League club Sunderland for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the London club to end manager Roy Hodgson's summer-long search for a defensive midfielder.

“It feels great to have signed for Fulham Football Club. These are exciting times at the club and I've joined to become an integral part of Fulham's future success,” Etuhu said.

“The club has made some terrific signings over the summer, adding to an already talented pool of players. Last Saturday's win over Arsenal shows just how competitive Fulham are in the Premier League.

“I'm looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates over the next few days, settling down and preparing for the club's next home game against Bolton Wanderers in a few weeks' time.

“This is a crucial stage in my career and I'm delighted to have committed myself to Fulham for what I hope will be my prime years as a professional footballer.”

Etuhu made 20 appearances for Sunderland after joining from Norwich City last year.

Fulham, who only avoided relegation on goal difference last season, bolstered their squad in the close season with the most expensive being striker Andy Johnson from Everton for 10 million pounds on a four-year contract.
