Fulham have completed the signing of Belgium international forward Moussa Dembele for an undisclosed fee from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar. The 23-year-old has signed a three-year contract at Craven Cottage, having previously been a target for Birmingham City. Dembele had spent the last four seasons with AZ, having previously played in the Netherlands with Willem II after starting his career in his homeland with Germinal Beerschot. Cottagers boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website: "I'm glad that we have finalised the deal with Moussa Dembele and I would like to welcome him to the club. "It is important that we go into the season with some additions to the squad who will add strength and depth to enable us to compete at a consistently high level throughout the season. "Moussa is strong and quick and will add another dimension to our attacking options, which is important for us. "I look forward to working with him and to, hopefully, a few more additions before the window closes."
