Fulham have signed winger Yohan Mollo from Zenit St Petersburg in a deal that could see him stay at Craven Cottage for up to two years.

The 28-year-old Frenchman played almost 50 times for Monaco having come through the youth system at Marseille.

Further spells at Caen and in Spain with Granada followed before he returned to France for a spell on loan with Nancy.

That deal was made permanent in August 2012, with Mollo then joining St Etienne in a temporary move before that turned into a permanent transfer.

A move to Russia followed when Krylya Sovetov also converted a loan spell into a permanent deal before Zenit snapped him up, with the former France U21 international scoring once in seven appearances for Roberto Mancini's side.

Fulham will now be hoping Mollo can help inspire a promotion push, with the player himself keen to get started.

We are delighted to confirm the arrival of Yohan Mollo, in a deal which could see the player at the Club for the next two years.

Fulham FC statement
The winger spent time at Marseille’s academy, before joining the youth setup at Monaco and going on to make almost 50 appearances for the Principality outfit, during which time he also took in a productive loan spell at Caen.

A brief period in La Liga followed with Granada, but he was back in France before long, making a collective 117 appearances for Nancy and then St Etienne, scoring 15 goals and laying on 27 assists.

During his time at St Etienne Mollo moved on loan to Russia with Krylya Sovetov, whom he joined permanently in the summer of 2016.

It wasn’t long before his form caught the eye of Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg, who brought him in six months later. He scored once in seven appearances for Roberto Mancini’s side.

A former French youth international, Mollo appeared six times for his nation’s Under-21 side.

Mollo said: “I am really happy and excited about the project.

“I have an opportunity to play in England and to play with a club with great history like Fulham with some great players. It’s a big opportunity for me and I am looking forward to getting started.”
