Fulham have signed AC Milan left-back Fodé Ballo-Touré on a season-long loan deal.

The Senegalese international arrives at Craven Cottage to compete with American international Antonee Robinson for a spot in Marco Silva’s starting eleven. The 26 year-old came through the famed Paris Saint-Germain youth academy, but emerged in Ligue 1 after joining Lille.

Ballo-Toure starred as Lille finished second in Ligue 1 in 2019 with the attacking full-back’s displays earning him a move to Monaco for a reported £9.5m. After making 74 first-team appearances, Ballo-Touré move to Milan, where he won the Scudetto in his first season and followed that up with a run to the Champions’ League semi-finals.

Ballo-Touré has won fifteen senior caps for Senegal, whom he helped win the African Cup of Nations title for the first time last year.
