Player description
On Tuesday 22nd August 2017, the Club announced the arrival of Rafa Soares on a season-long loan deal from Porto.

Fulham fought off two major European clubs for Soares’ services, with the player keen to test himself in English football.

The left-back took in a similar spell with top flight Rio Ave in 2016/17, whom he helped to a seventh placed finish, narrowly missing out on a UEFA Europa League spot by a point.

He played 32 times in the league and contributed three goals, along with five assists. It followed his first taste of senior football when he spent the second half of the 2015/16 campaign with fellow Primeira Liga outfit Académica Coimbra.

A regular for Portugal’s youth teams, Soares has amassed an impressive 72 caps from Under-16 to Under-21 level. Most of his appearances came for the Under-19s for whom he scored twice in 30 appearances, but he has also been selected nine times at Under-21 level.
