- Ivory Coast midfielder signs four-year contract
- Kenedy rejoins Newcastle on loan from Chelsea
Fulham have beaten off competition from several European clubs to sign the Nice and Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michaël Seri for a club-record fee in the region of £25m, on an initial four-year contract.
The deal represents a coup for Slavisa Jokanovic, the Fulham head coach, given Chelsea, West Ham United, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli, among others, were also credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international. But, Fulham moved quickly to make Seri, the 26-year-old midfielder, their maiden summer signing following promotion to the Premier League.
