Midfielder Pajtim Kasami has joined Fulham on a four-year deal from Palermo for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Macedonia-born Kasami played for Switzerland at this summer's Under-21 European Championship, where they lost to Spain in the final.

The 19-year-old broke into the Italian outfit's first team last season and impressed.

"Pajtim is a young, talented midfielder who has potential, so we are very excited about signing him on a four-year contract," said Cottagers manager Martin Jol.

"He is a versatile midfield player who can adapt quite easily to more than one position. He is a key player in the Swiss under-21 team.

"I am delighted to have been able to add two talented young players to my squad with the signing of Pajtim Kasami today, and Marcel Gecov last week, as I believe that they are going to be good additions to the squad both in the short and long term future."
