Adam Taggart: Joined Fulham on a three-year deal

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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
