Fulham Sign Germany Star Schürrle

Premier League returnees, Fulham have signed Germany forward Andre Schürrle from Borussia Dortmund on loan.

The 27-year-old, a World Cup winner with Germany in 2014, said the club had shown faith in him prompting him to join them.

“Fulham were the first club that showed interest in me – that was something that I appreciated a lot, and one of the reasons I wanted to come here,” Schuerrle told the club’s website.

“I love ball possession, I love attacking, and I love making runs, so I think it could be perfect. I have to fight for my place and I have to show my quality so that I can be a member who really helps the team.”

Schürrle is no stranger to the physical demands of the Premier League having played for Chelsea from 2013-2015. He scored 11 times for the Blues in 44 appearances.

Fulham have recruited four new players so far as they prepare for their first top-flight season since the 2013/14 campaign.
