Fulham have completed the signing of former Wigan star Hugo Rodallega on a free transfer, the striker signing a three-year contract.
The Colombian hitman has been on the look out for a new club since his contract with the Latics ran out at the end of last season.
Despite Roberto Martinez's best attempts to get Rodallega to stay he opted to move on in the hope of securing a deal with a bigger club.
In the past Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with the 26-year-old but neither made a move for the striker when his deal ran out.
Instead, Fulham manager Martin Jol has pounced to capture Rodallega as he looks to bolster his attacking options following the recent exits of Andrew Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Pavel Pogrebnyak from Craven Cottage.
Dutch coach Jol says he is delighted to have fended off interest from a number of other Premier League clubs to capture Rodallega and expects him to be a big hit in west London.
"There has been a lot of interest in him [Rodallega] from other top-flight teams in England and abroad, so to be able to add his quality to our squad is a massive boost this early in our preparations for the new campaign," he said.
"He is a great addition and I think he will contribute very well to our style and philosophy here."
The Cottagers will hope Rodallega's goals can propel the club further up the Premier League table than the ninth place finish they enjoyed last season, with Jol's men 11.00 to finish in the top six.
Fulham start their season at home to Norwich on August 18 in a game they are 1.83 to win, with the Canaries 4.33 and the draw 3.50.
