Fulham have confirmed the signing of Australian striker, Adam Taggart, from Newcastle Jets.

The Cottagers, who were relegated to the Championship last season after an underwhelming campaign in the top flight, are looking to strengthen their frontline in order to return straight back to the top flight.

A-League striker

Fulham were attempting to sign last year’s second tier top scorer, Ross McCormack, from Leeds, but the club refused to sell their star man. Fulham instead turned their attention to the Australian A-League, and have successfully brought in Taggart on a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old scored 16 goals for the Jets last season and earned himself a place in Australia’s World Cup squad, making an appearance in two of their group games, against Holland and Spain.

Hutchinson signing

Taggart is Fulham’s second signing of the summer, following the arrival of Shaun Hutchinson, who signed from Motherwell. Fulham will need to add further reinforcements to the squad if they wish to push for promotion straight back into the Premier League.

The club have released a number of players as they prepare for life in the Championship, with Brede Hangeland agreeing to terminate his contract. 

Other high-profile names to leave the club include Damien Duff, Steve Sidwell, Giorgos Karagounis, Mahamadou Diarra, John Arne Riise and John Heitinga.

Other exits

The club could be set to lose more of their star players, with Bryan Ruiz, Ashkan Dejagah and Kostas Mitroglou looking to move on.
