These Fulham fans are excited about the signing of Joe Bryan

Fulham have officially announced the signing of Joe Bryan from Bristol City on a four-year deal, with an option for a one year extension.

Joe Bryan enjoyed a fine campaign with the Robins in the Championship last time out, and caught the eye with a succession of swashbuckling displays at left-back.

Despite having done some excellent business in other areas of the pitch – including the recruitment of Alfie Mawson, Calum Chambers, Jean Michael Seri, Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic – the squad looked light in the left-back department.

The late, deadline day signing of Bryan though brings quality and depth to the left full-back berth and also allows Ryan Sessegnon to be deployed in a more advanced role.

Many Fulham fans have been desperate for the Cottagers sign a left-back and will have been delighted to see Bryan announced.

Plenty took to Twitter to welcome the new man to the club and the Premier League…
