Fulham have confirmed the capture of versatile defender Denis Odoi from Lokeren.

The 28 year-old, who can play as a full back on either side of the back four or in the centre of defence, has signed a three-year contract at Craven Cottage with Fulham holding an option to extend that deal by a further year. Odoi made 117 appearances for Lokeren, who he helped win the Belgian Cup, and represented them in the Europa League, where they qualified for the group stages by beating Hull City.

The former Oud-Heverlee Leuven and Sint-Truiden defender twice won the Belgian top flight with Anderlecht and has won senior international recognition with Belgium, having made his international debut in a friendly against Montenegro in 2012.
