Fulham vice-chairman Tony Khan has revealed his club have been targeting Anthony Knockaert for “several years”.

The popular Albion winger has joined the Cottagers on a season-long loan.

That is expected to become something more permanent next summer.

Knockaert has targeted a promotion to the Premier League to add to those he enjoyed with Leicester City and the Seagulls.

Khan said: “Anthony's a talented and accomplished attacking player who will strengthen our team, and his past contribution to successes in the Championship will bring important experience to our squad as we pursue another Fulham promotion to the Premier League.

“Anthony's been one of our top targets for the past several years and I'm thrilled that he's come to Fulham to play for our great supporters at Craven Cottage.”

Knockaert told Fulham’s club website: "I can’t wait to get started and obviously help the club achieve its goal.

“The goal is to get back to the Premier League where Fulham belongs. I have come here with the clear intention to get promoted and I want to help in any way that I can.”
