Fulham snap up Lazar Markovic from Liverpool

Fulham have completed the permanent signing of Lazar Markovic on a free transfer from Liverpool.
Markovic has signed a short-term deal with the Cottagers, putting pen to paper on a contract which will keep him at the club until the end of the season.

Relegation-threatened Fulham revealed that they received a positive recommendation from Markovic’s Serbian compatriot Aleksandar Mitrovic before making a move for the winger.

“Lazar Markovic is a gifted young player; we’re pleased to welcome him from Liverpool for the remainder of the season,” chairman Tony Khan told the club’s official website.

“Lazar is known as a great teammate, he has the support of our manager, and he has the talent to strengthen our attack.”

The shock transfer was completed almost an hour-and-a-half after the 11pm deadline, with the two clubs submitting last-gasp deal sheets to push through the move.

Markovic joined Liverpool in 2014 but quickly fell out of favour at the club and has spent the past three seasons out on loan.
