Hugo Rodallega is moving to Craven Cottage after signing on with Fulham.

Colombian striker Hugo Rodallega has agreed to a three-year deal with Fulham today. The 26-year-old had spent the last three season with Wigan Atheltic, but left the club in May. He left as the Latic's all-time record Premier League goalscorer, with 24 goals in 112 league appearances.

In an interview with Fulham's official website, Rodallega expressed the usual excitement you would expect from a newly signed player.

"I'm thrilled to have signed for Fulham Football Club. I wanted to stay in England and I'm delighted that I now have this opportunity with Fulham. I would like to thank the staff and fans of Wigan Athletic for three and a half wonderful seasons there. I'm looking forward to pre-season training with the rest of the Fulham squad and starting a new chapter in my career."

Cottagers' manager Martin Jol was excited about the new signing as well.

"I am delighted that Hugo has decided to join Fulham. There has been a lot of interest in him from other top flight teams in England and abroad, so to be able to add his quality to our squad is a massive boost this early in our preparations for the new campaign. He is a great addition and I think he will contribute very well to our style and philosophy here."

Rodallega was a free agent and thus there's no associated transfer fee with the signing.
