Fulham have made their first signing of the January transfer window, as Danish international William Kvist has joined the club from German side Stuttgart.
Kvist joins the Whites on a season long loan, with the option of making the deal permeant at the end of the season.
The 28-year-old was told he could leave Stuttgart this week, and after interest from West Ham, its Fulham who have got him to put to pen-to-paper.
Speaking to the official club website he said: "I’m very pleased to have got the deal done and I’m looking forward to contributing to this fantastic Club."
He added: "I just had my first training session and it was perfect. It was good to get to know the guys and talk to René Meulensteen about the tactical concepts and what his ideas are so I’m very much looking forward to my time here."
Operating as mainly a centre midfielder, he is seen as something of a utility man, being equally adept at playing in front of the defence or at the heart of it.
The Danish international has represented his country more than 40 times, and was part of the squad that went to Euro 2012.
Fulham will now be hoping that the signing of Kvist helps them turn their season around. Rene Meulensteen's side currently sit second from bottom in England's elite division.
