Fulham have confirmed the signing of left back Niclas Jensen from Borussia Dortmund.

The 31 year-old defender has signed a two-year contract at Craven Cottage as he returns to English football after a previous spell with Manchester City.

Jensen was part of Denmark’s Euro 2004 and 2006 World Cup squads and won the Danish championship with FC Kobenhavn under Roy Hodgson in 2001. Jensen then helped Manchester City return to the top flight under former Fulham manager Kevin Keegan and he made 32 appearances in the Premier League as City finished ninth in 2002/03.

Fulham manager Chris Coleman said:

“This summer has proved very productive for us in the transfer market and I am happy with the acquisitions we have made. The Chairman has again shown his continued support by allowing me to continue strengthening and having had a successful training camp out in Austria I am confident that we have everything in place for the new campaign.’
