Fulham add central midfielder Kevin McDonald from Wolverhampton

New, comments

After years of searching, is this the central midfielder we need?

Fulham have signed Kevin McDonald on a 3 year deal from Wolverhampton Wanderers, with an option for the club to extend his contract by a further year. The fee has remained undisclosed.

McDonald has been an ever present member within the Wolves team in his three seasons at Molineux, making 120 appearances for the club. The midfielder made 33 appearances in the Championship last season, scoring three goals and assisting twice.

The Scotsman was on the cusp of joining The Cottagers last summer but saw their bids of £1m and advanced offer of £1.25m rejected.

The deal sees an end of the 27 year old's tumultuous second half of last season. In March of this year, McDonald was hauled off at half time against Bristol City then dropped for the rest of the season. Wolves manager, Kenny Jackett, insisted the pair hadn't had a falling out. Then in May he surprisingly offered the midfielder an olive branch in the form of a fresh start, claiming he wanted the player to stay and fight for his place.

The Scotsman comes with promotional experience, gaining promotion from League 1 with Wolves.

Richard Stearman who was a team mate of his at Wolves seems to like the singing.

What role will McDonald play at the club, has he been brought in to play alongside Parker or replace him?

Are you happy with the signing of McDonald?
