Player description
On Friday 8th July 2016, Sone Aluko joined Fulham on a two-year deal, with a Club option for an additional 12 months, following the expiry of his contract at Hull City.

A product of Birmingham City’s youth academy, Aluko took in loan spells at both Aberdeen and Blackpool while on the books of the Midlands club.

A permanent switch to Aberdeen came about in 2008, and his form for the Dons saw him sign for Scottish giants Rangers in 2011, where he netted 12 times in 21 league games.

He moved back south of the border in the summer of 2012 when he joined Hull City, and he scored eight goals in 23 matches as the Tigers won promotion to the Premier League, something he helped them do once again last season.

Aluko also has an FA Cup runners-up medal, after coming on as a substitute in their extra-time defeat by Arsenal at Wembley in 2014.

Fulham confirmed on the 29th August 2017, some 12 months after joining the club, that Sone Aluko had joined Reading for an undisclosed fee, widely reported as being some £7.5m.

Aluko went on to make 50 appearances as Fulham reached the Play-Off Semi-Finals, during which time he also scored nine goals.

His form in October saw him named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month.

The 28-year-old also played four times for the Whites at the start of the current campaign.

On 29 August 2017, Aluko joined Reading for an undisclosed fee, signing a four-year deal.
