Goalkeeper Bernd Leno completes £8m transfer from Arsenal to Fulham | Fulham


Germany international goalkeeper Bernd Leno has completed his move to Fulham from Arsenal after signing a three-year deal.

The Cottagers, who have the option for a further 12 months, have agreed a deal worth up to £8million for the 30-year-old, for whom the Gunners paid around £20million when they bought him from Bayer Leverkusen in June 2018.

Leno, who lost his seat to Aaron Ramsdale last season, told FFCtv: “It feels great to finally be here. I can’t wait to join the team, train and play with the team. I’m relieved that everything “I’m just happy to be here. It took a while, but in the end we made it and that’s the most important thing.”

Leno, who had 304 appearances for Leverkusen by the time he arrived in north London, kept 37 clean sheets in his 125 appearances for Arsenal.

Fulham Vice-Chairman Tony Khan said: “Bernd Leno is the keeper we have steadfastly pursued throughout this transfer window, and we are very pleased to have reached a transfer agreement and he is now fully committed to Fulham.

“He has played at the highest level and he will bring this experience and his leadership to our team. He will be a great addition to [head coach] frames [Silva] team, who are all excited for the coming season.”
