Sanchez delighted with Fulham spending spree

Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez is happy with his summer signing spree.

"The Chairman has allowed me to spend this summer, on seven players so far and I'm hoping with a little bit more work we can get another couple in - we will have changed the Club over the course of the summer," he told fulhamfc.com.

"It's been well documented that we've got four players from Northern Ireland. With Steven Davis and Aaron Hughes their careers had probably gone onto the back burner at Villa and it was the chance to be part of a new resurgent team.

"In Chris Baird and David Healy they wanted the chance to play in the Premier League and they've got that now. With regard to Paul Konchesky he's had Premier League experience and Lee Cook is a local lad who wanted to come and play in the Premiership.

"Our biggest signing of the summer, Kamara from West Brom, he's been there before with Portsmouth - it didn't work out for him but he went to West Brom and proved that he's good enough. Now he's got the chance this season to prove he's a Premiership player.
