Roma's Riise joins Fulham

John Arne Riise is now a Fulham player after he completed his switch from Serie A giants Roma.

The 30-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal. It's is thought that Fulham have paid €2.6m to the Italians for him.

Riise joined Roma three years ago after seven seasons in England with Liverpool. He now joins his brother Bjorn Helge at Craven Cottage.

"Fulham is a club that I have been following as my brother, Bjorn, plays here and he speaks very highly of the club and the staff," the left-back told the outfit's website.

"Obviously I also played against the club in the Europa League group stage when they went on to reach the Final of the competition."
