Iranian international Ashkan Dejagah joined Fulham from Wolfsburg at the end of August 2012. He became only the third Iranian to play Premier League football after making his debut as a substitute against Aston Villa in October 2012. He scored his first goal against Tottenham in December 2013 – during Rene Meulensteen’s first match in charge. Dejagah became a superb sub during Felix Magath’s tenure in charge, memorably scoring winners against Newcastle and Everton. He was voted the club’s player of the year in 2013/2014, but left the club after Fulham were relegated from the top flight.
