Iran midfielder Ashkan Dejagah has left Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg to join Premier League team Fulham on a three-year contract.

"We can not hold Ashkan Dejagah back, but we have met his wish to move to England," said Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath.

The deal was done late on Friday night, shortly before the transfer window closed.

At Fulham, Dejagah, 26, is expected to replace US star Clint Dempsey, who joined Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth 7.5million euros (US$9.4m).

Dejagah, who played for Germany at all age ranges from Under-17 up to Under-21, but made his debut for Iran earlier this year, has played 158 German league games for Hertha Berlin and Wolfsburg, scoring 19 goals.
