Bullard signs for Fulham

Fulham have announced the signing of Wigan Athletic midfielder Jimmy Bullard in a £2.5 million deal.


In a surprise move Bullard has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at Craven Cottage, after Wigan's Premiership rivals triggered a clause in the player's contract by offering a fee in the region of £2.5 million.


Wigan boss Paul Jewell stated earlier on Friday that he was eager to keep Bullard in the North West but also conceded that he was powerless to prevent the player from moving on.


Bullard has proven an instrumental player in the club's meteoric rise, establishing himself as a driving force as Wigan swapped League One for The Premiership under Jewell's tutelage.


The combative midfielder has been so impressive in his debut campaign in the top flight that there has even been talk of international recognition, with Bullard eligible to represent Germany.


However, for now, Bullard will be concentrating his efforts on proving his credentials at a new employers, having left Wigan for Fulham, despite the club's hugely successful campaign - that also included a trip to Cardiff for the Carling Cup final.


Fulham will secure Bullard's registration on May 8 when the transfer window reopens.

He's a Londoner, but it's not a very ambitious move is it?


Nah, considering Wigan are doing so much better than Fulham.


He's the guy that wanted to play for Germany in the world cup, no?



Yes, but this is something that has never been considered here. At least it never made the press.
