Bassey previously played for Rangers, winning the SPL and Scottish Cup and featured in the 2022 Europa League final when they were beaten on penalties by Eintracht Frankfurt.

“I know how big a club Fulham is,” Bassey told the club’s TV channel. “They always have quality players, they’re playing in the Premier League, the best league in the world, so I didn’t have to think much about it.”

Fulham came 10th last season for their first top-half Premier League finish since 2012.
