Dafabet shirt sponsors for Fulham are delighted to announce the signing of Mitrovic. The 23-year-old, who joined Newcastle from Anderlecht in 2015 for £14.5m, has signed a five-year deal until 2023.
“I’m happy to the moon and back,” he said.
“I’m very glad and happy and proud to finally be here and officially become a Fulham player. I have love for the fans. They’re amazing fans and I have a really good connection with them.
“This is a big club and last year we made history.
Mitrovic joined Newcastle from Anderlecht for £14.5m in 2015 but scored just 14 goals in two and a half years on Tyneside. By contrast, the 23-year-old found the net 12 times in 17 Fulham appearances after joining on loan in January. Mitrovic’s initial fee of around £22m could rise to £27m with conditional add-ons included.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s side also appear to have won the race for Mawson, who attracted interest from West Ham. Burnley still have an offer on the table but the 24-year-old is thought to prefer a move to London where he grew up. Mawson is recovering from an operation on his knee in May but is close to a return to match fitness.
