Fulham sign Runstrom from Hammarby

Fulham continued building for the future by swooping for former Swedish Under-21 striker Bjorn Runstrom today.

Runstrom has been recruited on a three-year contract from Hammarby after impressing Cottagers boss Chris Coleman during a recent scouting mission.

The 22-year-old earnt a move to Italian club Bologna when he was 16 and also spent spells at Chievo and Fiorentina before returning to Sweden to join Hammarby.

Coleman, who signed 20-year-old Leyton Orient defender Gabriel Zakuani on Monday, revealed Bjorn was bought with the club's long-term success in mind.

'I believe that Bjorn will be another great prospect for the future for Fulham,' he said. 'We are committed to not only challenging for a top 10 spot this term but also to building for the future and Bjorn will be another one to watch.

'He has exceptional levels of stamina and gives the opposition defence little time for rest or composure because of his hard work and commitment.'

Runstrom, a clinical finisher in the Swedish league, was Hammarby's star striker and is thought to have cost Fulham £700,000.

He had a trial spell at West Ham and is anxious to prove he can become a success in the Barclays Premiership.

He said: 'This is a big step for me in my career and one that I'm very excited about.

'The chance to play in the Premiership really is a dream ambition for me, so to join Fulham is a great opportunity.

'The Premiership is one of the best leagues in the world and I'm eager to prove that I'm capable of performing at the highest level.'
