Fulham have confirmed the signing of Swedish striker David Elm from Kalmar for a fee believed to be in the region of £500,000.

Elm, who has signed a one-year contract, played a key part in Kalmar’s surrpise success as they won the Allsvenskan title in 2008. The brother of another long-term Fulham target, midfielder Rasmus, Elm says he is delighted to have joined Fulham.

I am looking forward to training with the team straight away in preparation for some important Premier League and Europa League matches after this international break. I have enjoyed my time in Sweden and I am now looking forward to a new and exciting chapter in my career with Fulham.
