Seri: Why I chose Fulham ahead of Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool

Former Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri has explained his decision to join Fulham this summer.

Seri, who saw a move to Barcelona collapse last year, admits he had offers from the Premier League's biggest clubs.

He told The Times: "When I played for Pacos de Ferreira in Portugal, Nice came for me and they really wanted me. Fulham wanted me the same way.

"They said, 'We want you, come to Fulham'. Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, they saw me but they did not say 'We want you'.

"Because Fulham gave me that respect, even though other clubs wanted me, I wanted to sign for Fulham."
