Fulham beat Chelsea to sign Ivory Coast star Seri

Ivory Coast international Jean-Michel Seri signed for Fulham on Thursday in a real coup for the Premier League new boys as he preferred them to Chelsea and German side Borussia Dortmund.

London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News, app - 12th Jul, 2018 ) :Ivory Coast international Jean-Michel Seri signed for Fulham on Thursday in a real coup for the Premier League new boys as he preferred them to Chelsea and German side Borussia Dortmund.

The 26-year-old midfielder signed a four-year contract -- with the option for it to be extended by a year -- with Fulham paying Ligue 1 side Nice a reported �25million ($33million, 28.2million Euros).

The transfer is subject to international clearance and a work permit for the 16-times capped Seri.

Seri was swayed by the promise of regular first team football and Chelsea's case was not helped by being still in a state of flux over the status of manager Antonio Conte, who has taken charge of training this week even though the belief persists that former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is to replace him.
