Brentford keeper Button joins Fulham

Button had a poor spell in the second half

Fulham have signed Brentford goalkeeper David Button for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old has signed a three-year deal at Craven Cottage, with the club having the option of extending it for a further 12 months.

Button played 141 times for the Bees since joining from Charlton in 2013, helping them to promotion to the Championship in his first season.

However with interest in his services growing, Brentford signed Southend goalkeeper Dan Bentley earlier this month, paving the way for Button to move on.

He is the second Bees player to join a rival west London club this summer after captain Jake Bidwell joined QPR.

Button will compete with Marcus Bettinelli and Joe Lewis for the number one jersey at Fulham.

The former Tottenham youth-teamer had loan spells at 11 different clubs while at White Hart Lane, also playing for England at Under-16 to Under-20 levels, before moving permanently to Charlton in 2012.

After failing to break into their side in the Championship, Button dropped down a division to join Brentford and immediately became their first choice.

Earlier on Tuesday, Fulham signed defender Scott Malone from Cardiff, allowing full-back Jazz Richards to move in the opposite direction.
