Fulham Football Club this morning confirmed the signing of Michael Brown from Tottenham Hotspur.
Manager Chris Coleman described his delight at the signing of the 29-year-old Spurs midfielder as he said:
'Michael is a talented footballer and a great lad who I know will fit in well here. He will add a new dimension to the midfield, which will improve our options and add much needed strength and depth to the squad.
The fee has been undisclosed but Vital Football understand it is to be in the region of £1.7 million.
Speaking at Fulham's training ground this morning Brown said: 'I'm very excited to be joining Fulham at this point in my career and I'm looking forward to the challenges that this new opportunity brings. I enjoyed my time at Spurs and wish the club and its supporters well, as everyone there was really good to me.
'But if I'm honest my prospects there became very limited, so when a Club like Fulham who play attractive passing football showed an interest in me, there really was only one decision that I could make, and I'm really looking forward to working with Chris Coleman and the rest of the squad.'
Coleman is now confident that the club can go on to push for a top-ten finish in the Premiership.
He added: 'I am delighted with the way this transfer window has panned out for the Club, and now we can really push on for a strong finish over the next 15 games and hopefully end the season on a high note.'
Brown's experience of top-level football first at Manchester City and then at Sheffield United before his move to Spurs will add much needed to depth to Coleman's midfield as he contends with long-term injuries to Claus Jensen, Phillippe Christanval and Mark Pembridge.
Ironically, Fulham will be taking on Tottenham at Craven Cottage tonight but Brown will not feature as part of the deal that took him from White Hart Lane.
