Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo has joined Fulham in a permanent transfer on deadline day.
Announced nearly an hour after the window closed, Adarabioyo has put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Craven Cottage, with Fulham holding the option for a further 12 months.
M.E.N. Sport understands that City will receive up to £2million for the transfer and have inserted a 20 per cent sell-on fee in the deal.
The 23-year-old, who impressed on loan at Blackburn Rovers last season, has explained that the time was right for him to leave the club that has been his home since the age of five.
“I’m very excited, very excited to get going and finally be playing Premier League football,” he said upon completing the deal.
“I felt like the time was right to leave the [Man City] and push on. It was the right time in my career to move on and hopefully get a lot of Premier League games.”
Fulham’s joint-owner and director of football Tony Kahn added: “I’m very excited to announce the addition of Tosin Adarabioyo to Fulham Football Club on a permanent transfer from Manchester City.
“Tosin has developed as a player and grown into a formidable defender out on loan to the Championship the past two seasons, where we saw his contributions at Blackburn Rovers first hand last season during our promotion campaign.
“Tosin has received positive ratings from our data team and our coaches, and most importantly Tosin himself badly wanted to join us, and he will come in and fight for our Club! Come on Fulham!”
Adarabioyo departs the Etihad after making eight first team appearances for the club.
