Newly promoted premier league side Fulham has announced the signing of Paris Saint-Germain goalie Alphonso Areola on loan.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper would remain at the London club throughout the 2020/21 season with an option of making the deal permanent.
Last season, Areola played between the sticks for Real Madrid. He was loaned to the Spanish club in a deal that saw Keylor Navas move to France.
Upon signing for Fulham, Areola said he was very happy the deal pulled through.
He said further that Fulham are a historic club in London and that he has heard a lot about the stadium.
“I hope this season will be a good one for us. I want to bring my energy and do everything for this team to keep us where we belong to be”, he said.
