French striker Jean-Pierre Tiehi has rejoined Fulham after signing a two-year contract this afternoon, the club have confirmed.

The forward, who had initially rejected a contract offer from the Championship club over the summer when his previous deal expired, told Fulham’s official website:

“I’m very happy to be back after coming to an agreement with the club I love. I’m enjoying this moment but I’m ready to get back to work and perform well for Fulham, who have put their faith in me and allowed me to return.

Tiehi is excited to feature for Fulham’s under 23s, who have made a terrific start to the new campaign and are currently top of the table on goal difference.

“I’ve been following the guys, who have started really well in the league. I’m hoping I’ll be a good addition to the team and I want to bring my personality and abilities into the side. We want to keep performing the way we have been all season.”

Fulham’s head of football development, Huw Jennings, said:

“We’re delighted that Jean-Pierre has re-signed at the club. At the end of last season, he was thinking long and hard about what he wanted his future to be and in the end he’s decided to commit his future to us. We’re really pleased to have him back. We’ve been a little thin resources wise as we’ve been playing a lot of younger players at first team level. Jean-Pierre’s been part of a project of developing strikers for the future and hopefully he can come back, get himself up to speed as quickly as possible and progress from there.”
