The 30-year-old will be reunited with his former manager at Blackburn Rovers, Roy Hodgson, at Craven Cottage through this move back to the English Premier League. 


Duff today told the Fulham website after finalising the transfer. "I am happy that my move to Fulham has been completed and look forward to joining in with the rest of the squad's training programme immediately in preparation for two important home matches this week.


"Fulham had a fantastic season last year and I know that having spoken to the manager in recent days that the club's ambitions remain high and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead."


Fulham boss Roy Hodgson hailed the arrival of the exciting winger by stating: "I am delighted to add a player of Damien Duff's calibre to our squad, and welcome the further midfield options he provides us with.


"I have known Damien for over a decade since he broke into the first team at Blackburn when I was manager, so I am fully aware of his qualities and I am looking forward to working with him again."
