Fulham FC have officially confirmed the signing of Fernando Amorebieta from Atheltic Bilbao on a free transfer.
It comes after months of speculation, with news in April suggesting a deal was imminent.
The player will sign on a four-year deal - something of a commitment from the club - and will meet up with the players in July.
Speaking to the official Fulham website, the 28 year-old defender said: "I'm delighted to have signed a four-year deal with Fulham and I'm looking forward to competing in the Barclays Premier League next season. I'm impressed with the talent already at the Club and I look forward to meeting the players for pre-season training in July."
