Cavaleiro joins Fulham

14th July 2019, 04:40 by Michael Holland

Ivan Cavaleiro says he is looking to grow as a player after leaving Wolves to join Fulham on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old Portugal international made 23 Premier League appearances last season, scoring three goals, but Wolves have to decided to let him move on.

He will now spend the 2019/20 campaign in the Sky Bet Championship at Craven Cottage, with Fulham holding an option to make the move permanent next summer.

"I'm really happy to be here and sign for Fulham," he told the club's official website.

"This is a big and respected club in England and through the rest of the world. Fulham has been involved in a European final, so it holds great pedigree.

"This is a good opportunity for me to grow as a player as well so I'm very happy to be here and I'm excited to be meeting everyone today."

Cavaleiro has two previous seasons of experience in the Championship, including helping Wolves to the title in 2018.
