Fulham have confirmed the signing of Andreas Pereira from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

The Cottagers have brought the one-time Brazil international in on a deal until 2026, with the option for another 12 months.

90min revealed earlier in July that Pereira was undergoing a medical at Craven Cottage having agreed a fee with United for the midfielder.

He told the club's website: “I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to start the season with Fulham.

“I want to help Fulham as much as I can to be where they belong. Marco Silva was very important for this. I spoke a lot with him, and he was a key factor in me being here.”

United's statement added: "Everyone at United would like to thank Andreas for his years of service and wish him all the best for the rest of his career."

Pereira spent last season on loan at Flamengo and the Brazilian side had hoped to land him on a permanent basis but he has instead opted to aid Fulham as they look to make their latest Premier League venture a successful one.

Following a 12-year spell in England's top flight that ended in 2014, the Cottagers have yo-yoed between divisions but their most recent campaign has given fans hope of a longer stay in the Premier League.
