Fulham have completed the signing of Swansea City goalkeeper Steven Benda for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract until at least the summer of 2026. The Whites also have an option to extend by a further 12 months.
Benda told the Fulham’s website: “I’m really happy. It’s a massive club with a lot of history and tradition, so I’m really happy to be here.
“Just look at this stadium, and the club itself, playing for Marco Silva, it was a very easy decision.”
The German keeper is sidelined with a knee injury.
Swansea manager Michael Duff said: “Steven made it clear he wasn’t going to sign a new contract.
“We probably wouldn’t have seen him until January so are we in a position to turn down the money for a goalkeeper that would have only been available for three or four months?
“We think we’ve got a good goalkeeper in Carl [Rushworth] anyway.”
