William Kvist: Dane with Fulham for remainder of the season

William Kvist: Dane with Fulham for remainder of the season

The 28-year-old had been linked with numerous clubs including West Ham and French Ligue 1 outfit Evian, but Fulham have won the race for his signature.

The Cottagers also have the option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season for a fee which is understood to be £1.2million.

Kvist is an established member of the Denmark squad, with 44 caps for his country, but he had fallen out of favour at Stuttgart.

He has been with Stuttgart for two-and-a-half years after moving to the Bundesliga outfit from FC Copenhagen where he was a team-mate of Fulham defender Brede Hangeland.

Kvist, who could make his debut against Southampton on Saturday, told Fulham's official website: "I'm very pleased to have got the deal done and I'm looking forward to contributing to this fantastic club.

"Of course I've heard a lot of good things from Brede and it's been a target of mine to come here so I'm delighted to be here really.

"The Premier League is the biggest league in the world. I've played in the Bundesliga which is also a really nice league, but this is the biggest challenge you could get as a footballer - this is the motherland of football.

"When I was a child I used to just watch English football on television so it's amazing being here.

"I just had my first training session and it was perfect. It was good to get to know the guys and talk to Rene Meulensteen about the tactical concepts and what his ideas are so I'm very much looking forward to my time here.

"Of course I would like to be involved against Southampton but the head coach will see if I'm fit and able to play - I think I am, although I haven't played for Stuttgart this year, but I'm feeling fit and motivated."

Ooh, let's Kvist again. Like we did last summer...

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
