Fulham have announced the signing of Brazilian striker Carlos Vinicius from Benfica on a three-year deal with the option for a fourth.

The Cottagers have had a busy deadline day, already confirming deals for PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa on loan and Willian on a free transfer.

Vinicius has followed them in signing for the west London club, returning to England after spending the 2020/21 season on loan at Tottenham.

Speaking to Fulham's club channels, Vinicius said: “I’m really happy to be here. I think it’s a big club with good people, so I’m really, really happy.

“I’m happy to be back in the Premier League again. I’m more experienced now and I think I can help the Club.”
