Fulham wrapped up their summer business with five new arrivals on transfer deadline day as they look to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

The Cottagers won promotion to the top flight after winning the play-offs and Slavisa Jokanovic has been one of the busier managers over the summer months.

Fulham’s squad has been boosted by 13 new arrivals – five of those on loan – with over £100million invested by owner Shahid Khan.

Despite doing plenty of business over the last few months Jokanovic was still reinforcing throughout the final day of the window.

Left-back Joe Bryan and midfielder Andre Zambo Anguissa joined for £6million and £22.3million respectively, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Sergio Rico and Luciano Vietto were snapped up on-loan.

Fosu-Mensah spent last term on loan with Crystal Palace from Manchester United and he believes the project at Craven Cottage provides him with the perfect chance to keep developing.

“I have a good feeling about the club. It has a nice history, it’s a nice club,” Fosu-Mensah told the club’s website.

“Fulham has a lot of good players, and it’s good for my development to be here. I spoke to the Manager and he gave me a good feeling. I’m happy to be here and I want to keep progressing.”

Jokanovic has plenty of options to pick from when Fulham, who are priced at 3.00 to be relegated, begin their 2018-19 campaign with a home clash against London rivals Crystal Palace.
