Fulham have signed Stuttgart midfielder William Kvist on loan until the end of the season.
The 28-year-old, who played in all three of Denmark’s matches at Euro 2012, could make the move permanent in the summer if he impresses at Craven Cottage.
A strong tackler and tidy user of the ball, Kvist began his career at FC Kobenhavn, playing in the Champions League alongside current Fulham skipper Brede Hangeland.
After six years in his native Denmark, he moved to VfB Stuttgart in the summer of 2011.
He has made 86 appearances for the Bundesliga side, but has not featured for them since 7 December.
Kvist has won more than 40 caps for his country and was an unused member of Denmark’s squad for the 2010 World Cup, before taking a full part in Euro 2012.
He said: “I’m very pleased to have got the deal done and I’m looking forward to contributing to this fantastic club.
“I’ve heard a lot of good things from Brede and it’s been a target of mine to come here so I’m delighted to be here.
“The Premier League is the biggest league in the world. I’ve played in the Bundesliga which is also a really nice league, but this is the biggest challenge you could get as a footballer.“
