Fulham seal Rodallega deal
Colombia striker Hugo Rodallega has joined Fulham on a three-year deal, following the expiry of his Wigan contract earlier this summer.
Rodallega, 26, had been linked with Fulham for some time but has finally put pen to paper on a move that will see him remain in the Premier League.
The forward spent three seasons at the DW Stadium with Wigan and holds the record of being the club's all-time record Premier League goalscorer, scoring 24 goals in 112 league appearances for the Latics.
"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," Rodallega told the club's official website.
"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."
