Fulham have completed the signing of South Africa international Kagisho Dikgacoi for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old midfielder has joined the club from Durban-based Golden Arrows on a two-year contract.

The deal was completed after Dikgacoi, who had been on trial at Craven Cottage, was granted a work permit.

"I have been given a wonderful chance to be part of a fantastic team playing in one of the best leagues in the world," he told the Fulham website.

"This is something very special to me and an opportunity that I am going to grab with both hands."

The move to Fulham will provide Dikgacoi with valuable experience before next summer's World Cup, which South Africa will host.


He has so far won 28 international caps and has been named in the squad for a friendly international against Germany on 5 September.

"I am so happy that my transfer to Fulham has been finalised.

"I have spent most of the summer training with the players and getting to know them and all of the coaching staff," he said.
