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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
