Fulham complete deal for AZ Alkmaar’s Dembele

Moussa Dembele has completed a move from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar to Fulham.

The 23-year old Belgium international has been linked with the Cottagers for some time now and there was also interest from Birmingham City but Mark Hughes has won the race for the striker.

“I’m glad that we have finalised the deal with Moussa,” said Hughes. “It’s important that we go into the season with some ¬additions that will enable us to compete at a ¬consistently high level.”

Dembele said he was looking forward to a fresh challenge in the Premier League with his new club.

“I’m prepared to work hard for the manager and take my chance to impress him,” he said.
