Fulham have turned Julian Gray’s loan deal from Coventry City into a permanent arrangement, the club have confirmed this afternoon.

The winger joined the Whites on loan from Coventry in the summer and made his debut during Fulham’s FA Cup third round win at Sheffield Wednesday. The Premier League side have now exercised a clause in the deal to secure a permanent move to Craven Cottage for an undisclosed fee.

Gray had made 29 appearances for the Sky Blues – scoring four goals – since signing from Birmingham City in the summer of 2007.
