Fulham have signed goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Arsenal on a three-year contract in a deal worth up to £8m.
The club also has an option to extend the 30-year-old German’s stay by a further 12 months.
Leno was Fulham’s number one target although the Championship winners did look at Barcelona’s Neto and Manchester United‘s Dean Henderson among others.
The Cottagers will pay £3m up front, £1m depending on appearances, £2m if they avoid relegation and a further £2m if they survive the following year.
Speaking to FFCtv, Leno said: “It feels amazing to finally be here. I can’t wait to join the team, to train and play with the team.
“I’m relieved that everything is done. I’m just happy to be here. It took a little bit of time but in the end we made it, and that’s the most important thing.”
Leno signed for Arsenal in 2018 after keeping 100 clean sheets in 304 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen over seven seasons.
