Jol completes Kasami capture

Fulham have confirmed the signing of Palermo midfielder Pajtim Kasami for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old, who has agreed a four-year contract at Craven Cottage, impressed after breaking into Palermo’s first team last season.

“Pajtim has potential, so we are very excited about signing him,” said Fulham boss Martin Jol.

Kasami was born in Macedonia but has pledged his international future to Switzerland, who he represented at the recent Under-21 European Championship.

He is Jol’s second midfield signing of the summer, following the recent capture of Marcel Gecov from Slovan Liberec.
