Fulham have announced their 9th signing of the summer, Spanish midfielder Jozabed Sánchez Ruiz.

The 25 year old midfielder arrives from Segunda Division outfit Rayo Vallecano for an undisclosed fee. The deal sees Jozabed sign a three year contract with an option for the club to extend for a further year.

Primarily deployed as an attacking midfielder, his versatility allows him to play in the deeper roles of central midfield and defensive midfield.

Last season, Jozabed made 27 appearances for Rayo Vallecano, scoring 9 goals and managing two assists as the side were relegated from the Primera Division

The midfielder had an outstanding pass completion rate, season managing to complete 85% of his attempted passes last season.

Jozabed made 16 of his 27 appearances in an attacking midfield role, tallying 7 goals in the process.

Have Fulham finally found their goal scoring midfielder with a creative spark?

I am intrigued to see how the partnership between Cairney and Jozabed will flourish.

Are you excited with the signing of Jozabed?
