Fulham chief Tony Khan confirms Carvalho leaving for Liverpool

Fulham chief Tony Khan has announced Fabio Carvalho will leave for Liverpool this summer.

Carvalho is set to be confirmed as a Liverpool player after the Reds struck an agreement with the Championship side last month.

Carvalho scored in Fulham's 7-0 hammering of Luton on Monday evening and Khan has admitted that the Portugal Under-21 international will leave at the end of the campaign.

“I really like Fabio," Khan told the Athletic. “He's a player we have always rated, coming out of the academy and we would have loved to have kept him.

“But we have made a deal that is best for the club and since that agreement, it's worked out wonderfully because he has been such a valuable part of promotion.

“Marco has done a great job with him. They have a great relationship and Fabio has been tremendous for us. He's a huge part of the squad and it's a massive loss but, because we have done good business, we can do good business to make sure we are strong in that position."
