Official: Fulham sign PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola

Fulham have completed the signing of Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on an initial season-long loan deal.

27-year-old Areola spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, making nine appearances for Los Blancos.

After Paris and Madrid, he nows heads to London with Fulham having an option to make his stay permanent next summer.

French international Areola credited Fulham boss Scott Parker for his decision to move.

“I am very happy everything is done,” Areola told FFCtv. “Scott Parker called me and I had a good feeling. He said he really wanted me.

“Fulham is a historic club in London and I have 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.”

Rennes were also keen on Areola to replace Edouard Mendy, who is closing in on a move to Chelsea.

But Fulham have pulled off a coup to sign Parisian following their return to the Premier League.
