Richards explains reasons behind Swansea to Fulham move

Fulham right-back Jazz Richards has explained his reasons to snub Premier League clubs Aston Villa and Norwich City for a move to the Championship.

The former Swansea City player spent the second half of last season on loan with the Cottagers and says his decision to return to Craven Cottage is due to his familiarity with the squad, backroom staff and manager Kit Symons.

"Knowing I only had a year left at Swansea, it was the right time to get out and get some games," Richards told getwestlondon.co.uk. "The lads when I come here; you could see the bonds we had and long may that continue.

"Knowing the manager and how good he is and the back room staff - it's a comfortable place for me."
