Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez insists he has not taken a risk by signing David Healy and insists he will continue raiding clubs from the lower leagues.

Northern Ireland striker Healy joined the Cottagers for £1.5million from Leeds on Friday and arrives with a magnificent international goalscoring record of 29 in 59 games.

"David has done tremendously well for Northern Ireland. He´s scored 18 goals in his 24 games under me," he said. "He moved to Leeds hoping they´d get back in to the Premiership but it started to go wrong. I have no doubt his finishing is of Premiership quality."
