Fulham have been able to secure the signing ofYohanMollo from Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg on transfer deadline day.

This has been a major coup for the Championship outfit. The 28-year-old is a well-known player in these quarters after having represented the likes of St Etienne and Monaco. Fulham have been able to bring the player to Craven Cottage on a contract for just two years.

The prospect of playing in the Premier League appears to have been a huge draw for the 28-year-old, who says that he is extremely excited about this project. Fulham have started the 2017-18 campaign as one of the teams capable of getting promotion.YohanMollo has been at Zenit St Petersburg, who also have former Chelsea winger Yuri Zhirkov in their ranks, for only a short period of time. He had moved to the club for just around € 500,000 from KrylyaSovetov Samara.

In his short spell at the club, he made seven appearances in the league and managed to come up with one goal. His decision to return back to English/French football will help him get some much needed stability in his career.

“I am really happy and excited about the project.I have an opportunity to play in England and to play with a club with great history like Fulham with some great players. It’s a big opportunity for me and I am looking forward to getting started,” said the 28-year-old. Fulham have also signed Wolves winger Jordan Graham on a season-long loan deal. “I’m over the moon. It’s a wicked club to be at. I know how big a club it is,” said Graham.
