Fulham boss confirms deal for David

Fulham have completed the signing of FC Twente midfielder Chris David, according to manager Martin Jol.

David, 19, was close to a move to Fulham in the summer but has now completed the transfer for an undisclosed fee.

"He is here," Jol said. "He has signed and he is here. He trained with us this morning. He is 19 years of age, player of the year of all the academies in Holland.

"He is an exciting talent but he will need at least six months of a year to adapt, but hopefully he will do it quicker. He is a very, very good talent.

"People say Ajax were interested and I imagine there will have been other clubs who were interested in him. We are very happy to get him. Maybe you can remember there was a little worry with his medical check on the last day of the transfer window so we decided not to do it.

"We took more time and that was a little problem for the boy because he couldn't play. First we have to get him fit and after that you will see he is an international player at all levels so I am very happy we have got him."

David has represented Holland at youth levels but did not make a first-team appearance at Twente.
