Fulham have signed defender Tosin Adarabioyo from Manchester City on a three-year deal, with an option to extend that by a further season.
The 23-year-old arrives at Craven Cottege on a fee believed to be in the region of £8m, and follows Denmark international and fellow defender Joachim Andersen through the door on deadline day.

Adarabioyo said: “I’m very excited, very excited to get going and finally be playing Premier League football.
“I felt like the time was right to leave the [Man City] and push on. It was the right time in my career to move on and hopefully get a lot of Premier League games.”
Owner Tony Khan added: “I’m very excited to announce the addition of Tosin Adarabioyo to Fulham Football Club on a permanent transfer from Manchester City! Tosin has developed as a player and grown into a formidable defender out on loan to the Championship the past two seasons, where we saw his contributions at Blackburn Rovers first hand last season during our promotion campaign.
We wish @TosinAdarabioyo the very best of luck on his permanent move to @FulhamFC ?

“Tosin has received positive ratings from our data team and our coaches, and most importantly Tosin himself badly wanted to join us, and he will come in and fight for our Club! Come on Fulham!”
The towering Adarabioyo has spent the last two seasons on loan in the Championship with West Brom and Blackburn, impressing enough to earn himself the step up to a Premier League side.
