Fulham snap up Liverpool youngster

Published Add your comment

Fulham have rounded off a busy day in the transfer market with the capture of German youngster Christopher Buchtmann from Barclays Premier League rivals Liverpool.

Buchtmann joined Liverpool in 2008 from Borussia Dortmund and played a key part in helping Liverpool Under-18s reach the FA Youth Cup final in 2008-09.

The 17-year-old, who can play at left-back or in midfield, has signed an 18-month contract at Craven Cottage.

Buchtmann was named among UEFA's top 10 stars of the future in May 2009 and also featured for Germany when they won the UEFA Under-17 European Championship last year.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson signed left-back Nicky Shorey on loan from Aston Villa earlier on Monday and now has adequate cover for Paul Konchesky, who is out with a foot injury.

Hodgson also signed Roma striker Stefano Okaka today and allowed Diomansy Kamara to join Celtic on loan.
