Fulham have finally completed the signing of Swedish defender Fredrik Stoor from Rosenberg.

The right back has signed a four-year deal at Craven Cottage and completed a medical yesterday. Stoor, who played in all three of Sweden’s group games at Euro 2008, began his career with Hammarby, helping them finish third in the Allsvenskan in 2006. He has spent two years at Rosenberg, for whom he made four appearances in last season’s Champions’ League.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson said: “I am delighted that Fredrik has joined us officially today. He is a player I have followed for some time through my contacts with the Swedish national team. I watched him closely with his club side and we did a lot of research on him.”

“Of course I had the opportunity to see him at close hand in the three matches that Sweden played in Euro 2008. and we decided that this was the player for us at right back. Certainly with John Pantsil and Fredrik Stoor we have excellent cover for that position for the coming season.”
