After four years at the Emirates, Leno has decided to swap North London for West London in search of regular first-team football in his bid to be named in Germany’s World Cup squad for Qatar.

Mikel Arteta allowed the ex-Bayer Leverkusen shot-stopper to leave having already brought in Matt Turner to be Aaron Ramsdale’s back-up.

And after undergoing his medical on Tuesday, the Cottagers have finally announced his arrival.

Leno has put pen-to-paper on a contract until 2025, with the option of a further 12 months.

Speaking to Fulham’s website, he said: “It feels amazing to finally be here. I can’t wait to join the team, to train and play with the team.

“I’m relieved that everything is done. I’m just happy to be here.

“It took a little bit of time but in the end we made it, and that’s the most important thing.”

Fulham co-owner Tony Khan added: “Bernd Leno is the goalkeeper whom we have pursued steadfastly throughout this transfer window, and we’re very excited that we’ve reached a transfer agreement and he’s now fully committed to Fulham!


“He has played at the highest level, and he’ll bring this experience and his leadership to our team.

“He’ll be a great addition to Marco’s squad, who are all excited for the season ahead! Come on Fulham!”
