Fulham sign former Real defender

Marcelo Djalo has joined Fulham.

Former Real Madrid defender Marcelo Djalo has joined Fulham from Lugo for an undisclosed fee.

The player has joined Slavisa Jokanovic’s side on a three-year deal with the option for a further 12 months.

In an interview with the club’s official website Djalo said “for me it is a proud moment. It’s a big club, an emblem of the city, and for me it’s a proud moment. Quite simply, I want to be here, I want to work here, I want to grow as a person and a footballer at this great club.”

As a youngster, Djalo also spent time on the books of Italian giants Juventus, though he never made a first team appearance.
