Alfie Mawson joins Fulham in £20million transfer from Swansea

Alfie Mawson has joined Fulham in £20million transfer from Swansea.

The centre-back becomes the south-west London club’s sixth signing of this summer’s transfer window, and puts pen to paper on a four-year deal.

Mawson said: "I’m really happy to get this over the line and join Fulham. I’m excited by the project going on here and the football being played last season was lovely on the eye but also effective and I can’t wait to be a part of it and get going.

"I’m excited to be a part of this great club moving forward and to help achieve success in the Premier League."

Tony Khan, vice chairman and director of football operations at Fulham, added: "I’m pleased to announce that Fulham Football Club has signed Alfie Mawson! Alfie is an exciting young player with a strong future at a position of major importance to our club.

"Alfie is also very highly regarded by our scouting department and our data analysts, giving us great confidence in our back line as we prepare long term for Premier League competition.

"It’s only fitting that such a fine homegrown talent like Alfie will flourish in the presence of the finest supporters in London at Craven Cottage for years to come. Come on Fulham!"

Mawson joins Jean Michael Seri, Maxime Le Marchand, Fabri, Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic through the door at the Cottage, as newly-promoted Fulham have splashed the cash this summer.
