Cook told fulhamfc.com: "It was an easy decision really. The ambition the Club were showing in the transfer market showed how intent Fulham are to push to the next level and I wanted to be part of that. It was also ideal for me in that I could remain in West London. It was an important factor for me not to have to uproot my family and fiancée by moving to a club up north. It was the perfect move for me.
"In my contract at QPR I had a clause where whatever fee I was sold for, I got 10% of it. Watford got 15% as part of the sell-on, and the manager and chairman were saying that not enough money was being paid for the deal, so I offered them my 10%. It helped them pay off certain debts, so I like to think that I, in some small way, helped the club."
