Fulham seal deal for QPR's Cook
QPR's Lee Cook is on his way to Fulham
Fulham have been chasing QPR winger Cook all summer
Fulham have completed the signing of 24-year-old QPR winger Lee Cook on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The Cottagers have been pursuing Cook all summer and had a 1.5m bid for him rejected, but have now agreed a deal believed to be worth about 2.5m.

Cook started his career with Aylesbury before joining Watford and then QPR, where he played more than 100 times.

He first moved to Loftus Road in a loan deal from the Hornets in December 2002 and joined permanently in July 2004.

Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez told his club's website that he was confident Cook would adjust to Premier League football.

"I know that he is hungry and ambitious and will do everything he can to impress in this league," he said.

"Lee's addition gives us much needed left sided options and I am now approaching the first game of our season, confident that we have a squad of players that will do well."

606: DEBATE
Cook, who has become Fulham's seventh signing of the summer, had long been linked with a move away from QPR but chairman Gianni Paladini was adamant he would not leave Loftus Road on the cheap.

Paladini told BBC London 94.9 last week: "I think he would be a bit offended if someone valued him at 1.5m. He's a QPR player and unless we get a decent deal he's going nowhere and he knows that."

"There's no way he's going for 1.5m. I just want to assure the fans."
