Fulham sign midfielder Pajtim Kasami from Palermo
Monday 25 July 2011
Fulham have confirmed the signing of Palermo midfielder Pajtim Kasami for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old Switzerland Under-21 international has signed a four-year deal which ties him to Craven Cottage until 2015.
Kasami, who was born in Macedonia but represented Switzerland at this summer's Under-21 European Championship where they lost to Spain in the final, broke into the Italian outfit's first team last season and quickly impressed.
Cottagers manager Martin Jol said: "Pajtim is a young, talented midfielder who has potential, so we are very excited about signing him on a four-year contract.
"He is a versatile midfield player who can adapt quite easily to more than one position.
"He is a key player in the Swiss Under-21 team.
"I am delighted to have been able to add two talented young players to my squad with the signing of Pajtim Kasami today, and Marcel Gecov last week, as I believe that they are going to be good additions to the squad both in the short and long term future."
