The 21-year-old has joined the Championship side for an undisclosed fee and will link up with his new team-mates at Craven Cottage after returning from the World Cup.

Taggart was a part of Ange Postecoglou’s 23-man squad for Brazil and he made two appearances in a tough Group B campaign – coming off the bench in the 3-2 defeat to Holland before leading the line in their 3-0 loss to Spain.

Having joined from Perth Glory in 2012, Taggart spent two years at Newcastle and scooped the A-League Golden Boot and Young Footballer of the Year award during his time there, as well as earning a place in Team of the Season for the last campaign.

Fulham have been heavily linked with a striker in recent weeks as they look for an immediate return to the top-flight, with a £5million bid rejected for Leeds United captain Ross McCormack, but Taggart’s arrival has now boosted Felix Magath’s attacking options.

A statement on the club’s official website read: "Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Adam Taggart from Australia A-League side Newcastle Jets, for an undisclosed fee."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
