Fulham have confirmed the double signing of Wales midfielder Harry Wilson from Liverpool and former Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Wilson, 24, has signed a five-year deal with the Cottagers after completing the formalities of his reported £12million switch.

Argentinian keeper Gazzaniga has agreed a two-year contract after leaving Spurs as a free agent at the end of last season.

The signings are the club’s first since their relegation from the Premier League last season and the appointment of Marco Silva as manager.

Wilson made only two senior appearances at Liverpool after coming through their youth system but has gained considerable experience during a series of loans.

He has had spells at Crewe, Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and, most recently, at Cardiff last season. In addition to this he has 29 Wales caps and made three substitute appearances at Euro 2020 this summer.

Wilson was also linked with Benfica and Liverpool reportedly rejected a bid for him from Burnley last year.

He told FFCtv: “I’m delighted to sign for Fulham. The ambition of the club to get back into the Premier League appealed to me as that’s where we all want to be.”

Fulham are Gazzaniga’s fourth English club after previously playing for Gillingham, Southampton and Spurs.

The 29-year-old, who had a loan spell at Elche last season, said: “Fulham is a great club. I love the challenge and I think this is an excellent opportunity for me.”
