Fulham have confirmed the deadline-day signings of Joe Bryan, Luciano Vietto and Sergio Rico.

Left-back Bryan has signed a four-year-deal with Fulham and the club have an option to extend that by a further year.

Bryan, 24, was heading to Aston Villa before Fulham cam in with a late offer for the player, who says he could not turn down the chance to play in the Premier League.

He told the club’s website: “Playing against Fulham the last couple of years, the style of play has really stood out to me and it will suit me.

“The opportunity to play in the Premier League is one you can’t turn down as you may never get it again in your lifetime.

“I’m used to playing fast attacking football, so hopefully I can slot right in.”

Fulham have also signed 24-year-old forward Luciano Vietto from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.

While goalkeeper Sergio Rico, 24, has signed on loan from Sevilla.
