Fulham have confirmed the signing of Andre Schurrle from Borussia Dortmund on a two-year loan deal
The German forward has struggled for regular playing time at Dortmund and has scored just three goals in his last 33 Bundesliga games and will be hoping that a move to Fulham will provide him with the platform to resurrect his career after passing his medical on Wednesday.
Schurrle will be able to provide valuable experience for the newly-promoted Fulham in the Premier League with the 27-year-old having previously played for Chelsea between 2013 to 2015.
Schurrle will wear the no.14 shirt at Craven Cottage.
“I’m so happy to be here, I can’t wait to get started. Fulham were the first club that showed interest in me – that was something that I appreciated a lot, and one of the reasons I wanted to come here,” Schurrle told the club website.
“I love ball possession, I love attacking, and I love making runs, so I think it could be perfect. I have to fight for my place and I have to show my quality so that I can be a member who really helps the team.”

Fulham owner Tony Khan added: “I’m thrilled to announce that the Fulham Football Club has signed Andre Schurrle on loan from Borussia Dortmund. Andre has been a top target for us, as he has for other clubs throughout Europe, so I’m very happy that our pursuit was successful.”
Schurrle becomes Fulham’s fourth signing of the summer with Jean-Michael Seri, Maxime Le Marchand and Fabri having already joined.
