Fulham have signed Nathaniel Chalobah from Watford for an undisclosed fee.
Chalobah, who has signed a contract until 2023, made 75 appearances for the Hornets and scored three goals during a four-year stay at Vicarage Road.
Chalobah said: “There’s a great project here, one that excites me. I worked with the gaffer during my first year at Watford and I always got a good vibe from him.
“I’ve looked at the team here and thought there’s the potential to be back in the Premier League next year. That’s my target.”
Fulham director of football Tony Khan said: “I’m very happy that we’ve been able to add Nathaniel Chalobah to our squad.
“It was great to be able to reach a favourable agreement to sign Nathaniel, he had excellent references, having had good experiences working under Marco in the past, and Nathaniel’s versatile athletic presence will strengthen our midfield.”
