Experienced defensive midfielder Kevin Ball arrived at Fulham in December 1999 to be reunited with his former Sunderland midfield colleague Paul Bracewell at Craven Cottage. The ball-winner was signed to add some heft to Fulham’s midfield but he struggled to make an impact and replicate his consistent Sunderland displays in SW6, making just twenty appearances before moving on to Burnley on a free transfer at the end of the season.
