​Fulham have completed the signing of Nigerian international Sone Aluko on a two-year deal following the expiry of his contract with former club Hull City.

Aluko was officially released from the Tigers after he was not included on the ​club's list of retained players for the 2016-17 season.


The London-born striker ​was announced as a Fulham player on the club's official website and will have the option to extend his stay at Craven Cottage to a third year.

The Nigerian left the KC Stadium after four-years with the club in which he played 108 times, scoring 15 goals for the side. During his time on Humberside he helped the club win two promotions to the Premier League and was involved in the 2014 FA Cup run which took Hull to their first FA Cup Final.


Hull's vice-chairman Ehab Allam wished Aluko well for the future, thanking him for his time at the club.


Aluko moves onto pastures new in London, and trained with his new teammates for the first time on Saturday.

​Speaking to the club's official Youtube channel, Aluko revealed that we was pleased to sign for a club that matched what he was looking for.


The summer signing spoke highly of Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic and the vision and playing style he held for the club.

"The ambitions of the club matched mine" told Aluko following the completion of his move on Friday.


Despite leaving Premier League bound Hull, Aluko was quick to recognise that the summit of Fulham's aims was to return to the Premier League.


"I want to go back to play in the Premier League and right now I feel this is the best platform for me to do so" he told the club's Youtube channel.
