Fulham have officially confirmed the signing of recently departed Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Tottenham confirmed back in May that Gazzaniga would be departing the club along with Danny Rose after the pair’s contracts in North London ran out.
The Argentine had been an important player for Spurs during the four seasons he spent at the club, often deputising competently for Hugo Lloris when the Frenchman was out injured.
However, the 29-year-old was replaced by Joe Hart as Lloris’ main understudy last summer and was subsequently allowed to join Elche on loan for the second half of the season.
The Argentine international has now signed on the dotted line for Fulham, who will look to bounce straight back up after their relegation from the top flight last season.
Gazzaniga admitted that he was full of excitement ahead of his new challenge at Craven Cottage.
The former Spurs shot-stopper told Fulham’s official website: “Fulham is a great club. I love the challenge and I think this is an excellent opportunity for me.
“When they spoke of the project here at Fulham the decision was easy.
“The Championship is a very strong league and I am looking forward to getting started.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Fulham is a great move for Gazzaniga as it potentially gives him a chance to return to the Premier League in the next couple of years. At 29, the Argentine is still young for a goalkeeper and could still make a mark in the top flight.
