Confirmed: Fulham completes acquisition of Timothy Castagne from Leicester
Fulham made an official announcement on Tuesday about their newest acquisition, Timothy Castagne, who has joined the team from Leicester City. The Belgian defender has committed to a four-year contract with the option to extend for another season until 2028.
Fulham took to their official social media platforms to reveal the signing of Timothy Castagne. After spending three seasons at Leicester City, the Belgian defender has decided to make a return to the Premier League with the Cottagers.
Castagne, 27 years old, has joined Fulham on a four-year deal and has the opportunity to extend for an additional season. This signing marks Fulham’s first since losing Aleksandar Mitrovic to the lucrative Saudi Pro-League.
Having secured the services of Marco Silva as their manager, Fulham has made Timothy Castagne their fourth signing of the summer, following Raul Jimenez, Calvin Bassey, and Adama Traore. Castagne’s move comes after making 112 appearances for Leicester City.
Expressing his excitement, Castagne said, “I feel very good, it’s been a long transfer window, but finally I’m here and I’m happy to be here.” He added, “It’s a big relief. I’ve talked to the manager and I just can’t wait to start training and playing.”
