Derek Boateng has confirmed his move from Ukrainian club Dnipro to Fulham.

The 30-year old Ghanaian midfielder, who has been close to a shift to Fulham in the past, has signed a two-year deal with the Cottagers and will arrive in Southwest London as soon as possible to begin training.

"I have signed a two-year deal with Fulham and will be training with them for the first time [on Tuesday]," Boateng told Accra-based Happy FM.

"I believe it's a good move and I'm finally happy to see this deal [confirmed]."

Former Getafe, FC Cologne and AIK Stockholm man Boateng joins Fulham on a free transfer after his contract with Dnipro expired.
