Seol Ki-Hyeon happy with Fulham move

The South Korea international attacker told fulhamfc.com: "I was very pleased to be able to move here.

"One of the reasons I did was because of the ambition that was shown by everyone at the Club. We have the ability in the squad to have a strong season and also maybe to do well in the FA Cup, but we as players have to work hard to achieve these things.

"When a Manager wants to bring you to a Club it gives you confidence. I'm at the right Club to be playing my football. I always wanted to come and play in England - that was my goal when I was younger. The Premier League is the best league in the world so I am very proud and happy, but there's a lot for me to do and achieve and I want to do that in this league with Fulham."

Seol admits that he is thankful to Reading and Steve Coppell for giving him his first opportunity in the Premier League, but felt that a move to Craven Cottage was a positive step for him.

"It's difficult to compare the teams properly as I have only been at Fulham for a short time, but Fulham is an established Premier League club now," he explains. "The facilities are a lot better than at Reading and since being here I definitely know that is was the right move for me.

"I had a very successful first season with Reading. Everyone said that we would go down, but we showed what a good team we were. Of course it was hard for me to leave, but I feel that I made the right decision; it was a move that I wanted to make."
