After the torrid term we suffered last season, it was obvious the squad needed revitalising. With the transfer embargo lifted, Jokanovic now has the chance to restructure the squad for a promotion push.

Outgoing

Dan Burn

Signed for: Wigan Athletic

Departed: 8th May

Fee: Free agent

Fulham ran through his veins, but the big man was an accident waiting to happen, a hindrance to a side looking to progress.

Kostas Mitroglou

Signed for: Benfica

Departed: 18th May5

Fee: 5.95m £

Was it Meulensteen who picked him? Was it stats? The marquee signings failed to live up to his fee under Magath before being shipped off on loan to Benfica, where a positive season saw the deal become permanent this summer.

Shaun Hutchinson

Signed for: Millwall

Departed: 7th June

Fee: Free agent

The centre back boasted pace to his play, something of a rarity in today's game. However Hutchinson fell short of Jokanovic rejuvenated defence,

Alexander Kacaniklic

Signed for: Nantes

Departed: 7th June

Fee: Free agent

As the Swede broke onto the scene he looked like a star of the future. The winger frustrated many, never managing to live up to the hype.

Jamie O'Hara

Departed: 7th June

Signed for: Gillingham

Fee: Free agent

When Jamie O'Hara played for Fulham he lived up to many footballing stereotypes. The midfielder ‘played with his heart on his sleeve’ and ‘always left 110% on the field’. Did personal problems affect the view of club? Regardless O’Hara became surplus to requirements in Slavisa's new look side.

Andy Lonergan

Departed: 8th June

Signed for: Wolverhampton Wanderers

Fee: 255k £

The keeper brought experience to a young group of goalkeepers. David Button’s imminent arrival saw Lonergan slip to 4th in the pecking order.

Emerson Hyndman

Departed: 17th June

Signed for: AFC Bournemouth

Fee: Free agent

Hyndman became the latest in the Fulham-America partnership. The young American quickly took to the hearts of the fans and was part of promising trinity that emerged from the youth side’s cup run.

Emerson seemingly looked to become the creative midfielder for years to come, but decided to start for pastures new in the Premiership upon his contract expiry.

Moussa Dembele

Departed: 28th June

Signed for: Celtic

Fee: Free agent

The second of the prosperous trinity to depart this transfer window. The prolific teen took the Championship by storm in a partnership with McCormack. The young Frenchman wanted to progress his career, which saw him move to the Scottish champions.

Maarten Stekelenburg

Departed: 1st July

Signed for: Everton

Fee: 850k £

World Cup 2010 finalist to Championship flop. His attitude was not with the club, the Dutchman’s departure was made by mutual decision.

Ben Pringle

Departed: 4th July

Signed for: Preston North End

Fee:

The winger looked a promising prospect on arrival at the club, but he failed to shine on the struggling squad. Pringle spent time away on loan at Ipswich Town last season, before finally departing the club this summer to Preston North End.

Jazz Richards

Departed: 19th July

Signed for: Cardiff City

Fee: Swap deal

I do feel for Jazz, however I agree with the voice of fellow fans in saying good riddance. The Welshman was the weakest link in the third worst defence in the league, a statement that speaks for itself.

Fernando Amorebieta

Departed: 19th July

Signed for: Sporting Gijón

Fee: Undisclosed

The Venezuelan struggled to nail down a first team place and spent a majority of his time at the club away on loan at Middlesborough. On his return he was one of the better performers but was a booking waiting to happen.

Ross McCormack

Departed: 4th August

Signed for: Aston Villa

Fee: £12m

Fulham's talisman of late, he left the club for fellow Championship side Aston Villa. Fans were divided on his departure, his goals last season kept the club in the Championship. The transfer has paid dividends, allowing to free up the funds to rebuild the squad.

Sakari Mattila

Departed: 8th August

Signed for: SønderjyskE

Fee: Free agent

Brought in on Kline's analytics, Mattila was underwhelming in his only season at the club and in turn saw himself shipped this window.

The Bulgarian always looked to have something more to give, however it never truly took off at Fulham.

With the arrivals of Madl, Kalas, and Sigurdsson; Stearman’s playing time would have been limited. A positive move for both the player and the club.
