David Healy has joined Fulham from Leeds United for a fee believed to be around £1.5m.

The Northern Ireland striker will be reunited with former national team boss Lawrie Sanchez at Craven Cottage. The 27-year-old has scored 29 goals in 59 appearances for his country.

“Obviously I know Lawrie Sanchez well and through his time as manager of Northern Ireland he has given me a lot of support, so I’m really looking forward to playing under him in the Premiership,” Healy said. “It was a disappointing end to my time at Leeds with the club being relegated and I wish them well for the future.”

Sanchez told Fulham’s website: “My interest in signing David Healy has been well documented in recent months and I am delighted that he has signed for the club today. David has showcased his striking pedigree at the highest level with Northern Ireland in recent years, and I have every confidence that he will replicate the same form for Fulham in the Premiership.

“The signing of David Healy follows the addition of Diomansy Kamara and I am pleased with the quality in attack that will be at my disposal next season.”

Healy becomes the fourth Northern Irish player to join the club this summer.
