Ghana ace reveals Fulham switch

Derek BoatengDerek Boateng has confirmed that he will join Fulham on a two-year contract after his current deal expired with Ukrainian side Dnipro.

The 30-year-old Ghana international midfielder had looked set to join the Cottagers in the January transfer window but the move fell through when Dnipro pulled the plug just before the deadline.

However, despite looking like Boateng would then move to Greek giants Olympiakos when his contract expired this summer, the player has opted for a move to the Premier League with Martin Jol’s Cottagers.

“I have signed a two-year deal with Fulham and will be training with them for the first time today [Tuesday’,” Boateng told Accra-based local radio station Happy FM.

“I believe it’s a good move and I’m finally happy to see this deal concretised.”

The news will come as a big boost to Jol who has been chasing Boateng for some time with the player, who has been capped 46 times by Ghana, set to bring a big work-rate and plenty of energy into the Cottagers’ midfield next season.
