The goalkeeper will add depth to the goalkeeping department following the departure of Willy Caballero.

The 6ft 4in keeper spent over a decade at Craven Cottage, making 120 appearances for the Whites, and also represented the England Under-21 team earlier in his career.

"It’s always been a special club. I know the area very well so it’s been a dream of mine to come over to this side and it’s finally happened. There were some talks a few years ago when I was a bit younger and for whatever reason, that didn’t come about but I’m here now," the 29-year old said on signing the contract. 

"I’m really excited to be involved and looking forward to trying to impress and help the team as much as I can,"

He becomes Thomas Tuchel's first signing of the summer, as many more players continue to be linked with the club.
