Dikgacoi grateful to Fulham for sticking with him

South African midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi hopes he can make an impact at Fulham this season.

Dikgacoi is grateful to Fulham for standing by him as both parties sweated on him gaining a UK work permit.

He told fulhamfc.com: " It had been a long wait, but I'm very pleased to be a Fulham player now. I had always wanted to play in the Premier League and the Club has given me that opportunity.

"Growing up, like a lot of young South African players, playing in England was the dream because it has been the best league in the world for a while now.

"It was frustrating waiting for my work permit to be granted, but the Club stood by me from the beginning - it was just a matter of waiting for my moment. I came close to joining a year or so ago, but when that didn't happen the Club continued to follow my progress. So even though I wasn't a Fulham player, I knew I had to do well last season, because they would be watching."
