Adel Taarabt, having passed a recent medical, has now finalised a season-long loan deal with Fulham - a deal which keeps him in the top flight following QPR's relegation to the Championship. 

The move also reunites him with Martin Jol, who was the manager of Tottenham Hostpur during Taarabt's time as a player at White Hart Lane.

The talented Moroccan has played in the second-tier with Queens Park Rangers in the past, but won’t be making the step down under Harry Redknapp after penning a deal at Craven Cottage.

Taarabt said earlier: "This was a difficult decision for me, but at this stage of my career I feel that I should be playing at the top level.

"I hope the fans understand my decision and I really hope to return to Loftus Road one day. I wish QPR well for the season and hope they achieve promotion back to where the club belongs."

Martin Jol was asked about Taarabt, and he replied: "I like his creativity and, of course sometimes it comes off and he scores a lot of goals.

"It is like Dimitar Berbatov. Sometimes these fantastic talents will be blamed but I hope we can gel him in together with the boys we've got.

"I think he can do a hell of a job for us because he is a tremendous player on the ball."

In my opinion, Taarabt will fit in well at Fulham and add a lot of creativity, flair and pace to the team. He will help out Berbatov and create many chances to score. 

As well as assists, he will score quite a few goals himself. The addition of Taarabt in the team may help Fulham to a top-half finish next season as well as going further in the domestic Cup competitions.
