Greening completes Fulham switch

Published Add your comment

Jonathan Greening has completed his season-long loan move from West Brom to Fulham, with a view to a permanent deal.

The 30-year-old midfielder, who submitted a transfer request back in the middle of July, has been at the centre of an ongoing saga this summer that has seen Albion reject three previous offers from the Cottagers.

But Roy Hodgson's perseverance paid off last Thursday after it emerged the west-London club had finally got their man, subject to a medical, at the fourth time of asking.

And after seeing his former captain finalise a switch to Craven Cottage, West Brom head coach Roberto Di Matteo told the club's official website: "Jonno has been a big player for this club and, as you well know, we made every effort to keep him.

"But eventually we felt the deal on the table was a very good one for us and we decided to let him go. We wish him good luck. He's been a great servant for this club."

Di Matteo added: "At the moment, I think we have a very good squad with the players we've got. Let's not forget we have a couple of longer-term injuries with Ishmael Miller and James Morrison. I'm not going to rush into any decisions about another player."
