Fulham beat the clock to complete the last-minute deadline day signings of defender Cyrus Christie and striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

West London Sport revealed earlier on Wednesday that the Whites were working hard to get the deals over the line before the window closed.

They managed to secure both, with Republic of Ireland right-back Christie signing a three-and-a-half-year deal at Craven Cottage, after an undisclosed fee was agreed with Middlesbrough.

The 25-year-old former Coventry and Derby player only joined Boro last summer for a reported £2.5m fee.

He played 26 times for the Teessiders, scoring his only goal for the club in their 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage back in September.

Fulham then wrapped up a loan move for Newcastle forward Mitrovic, after a proposed switch to Anderlecht seemingly collapsed.

Mitrovic scored four goals in 25 appearances in the Championship for the Magpies last season.
