Fulham have signed midfielder Dickson Etuhu from Sunderland on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old Nigerian international made 20 appearances for the Black Cats last term following his arrival from Norwich City in summer 2007.

Etuhu began his career at Manchester City, before signing for Preston in 2002 and then joining Norwich in 2006.

Etuhu said: "These are exciting times at the club, and I've joined to become a part of Fulham's future success."

Etuhu started just 11 league games for Manchester City before signing for Preston in a £300,000 deal.

He played nearly 150 games for North End before joining Norwich after a loan spell at Carrow Road.

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson added: "Dickson's athleticism, strength and brand of football will offer a new dimension."

True Football Genius

Etuhu is the 11th player Hodgson has signed since Fulham narrowly avoided relegation at the end of last season.

"The transfer window closes in a few days' time and Iím delighted with the signings we have made this summer," said Hodgson.

"A great deal of credit must go to those working behind the scenes who have worked tirelessly to secure the players we have targeted."
