Richards out, Malone in at Fulham


Fulham have completed the signing of left-back Scott Malone from Cardiff City, with Jazz Richards moving in the opposite direction.

Malone has signed a two-year contract with the option of a further year, while Richards has signed a three-year deal at Cardiff. 

Wales defender Richards, 25, made 22 league appearances for Fulham after his move from Swansea a year ago.

He impressed during a spell on loan at Craven Cottage the season before last but struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular last term.

Malone, also 25, returns to London, having had a two-and-a-half-year spell at Millwall before joining Cardiff in January last year.
