Fulham sign international Stoor
Wednesday 30 July 2008
Fulham have signed Swedish defender Fredrik Stoor from Rosenborg on a four-year contract.
Rosenborg and Fulham had an agreement in place before Stoor underwent a medical which he came through successfully.
Stoor, 24, played for Sweden at Euro 2008, appearing in all of their three group games.
Fulham manager Roy Hodgson told www.fulhamfc.com: "I am delighted that Fredrik has joined us officially today.
"He is a player I have followed for some time through my contacts with the Swedish national team.
"I watched him closely with his club side and we did a lot of research on him.
"Of course I had the opportunity to see him at close hand in the three matches that Sweden played in Euro 2008.
"And we decided that this was the player for us at right-back.
"Certainly with John Pantsil and Fredrik Stoor we have excellent cover for that position for the coming season."
Pantsil joined from West Ham earlier in the summer, along with Bobby Zamora, as part of a £6.3million deal.
Fulham are also expected to sign striker Andrew Johnson from Everton in the near future after agreeing an eight-figure fee for the England international.
