Fulham complete capture of West Ham pair Zamora, Pantsil

Fulham have completed the signing of West Ham pair Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil for a combined £6.3 million.

Zamora, 27, had been at Upton Park since January 2004, but managed just 14 games last season, scoring one goal.

"I am looking forward to joining the rest of the team this week and preparing for the new campaign," he told the Fulham website.

Ghana international Pantsil joined West Ham in 2006 but started just seven league games for the Hammers.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson said he was "very pleased" to add the pair to his squad.

"Bobby is a talented striker who not only has a desire to score goals but always looks to involve the rest of the team with his intelligent play," added Hodgson.

"I have no doubt that Bobby will play an important part for us and his quality has allowed us to strengthen our attacking options.

"John has a versatility that will provide us with more defensive options, which is extremely important to the strength and depth we have in the squad."
