Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa has agreed to join Fulham for £30million.

Marseille finalised a deal with the Cottagers on Deadline Day, and the midfielder becomes the newly-promoted side's eighth signing of the transfer window.

Reports in France claim the deal was held up due to a disagreement over the payment method.

Fulham wanted to pay the club-record £30million transfer fee in installments, whereas the Ligue 1 club wanted the money up front, according to France Football.

A compromise was struck between the two teams before Thursday's 5pm deadline.

Anguissa will join seven players already through the door at Craven Cottage, after the south-west London club splashed the cash in their first season back in the big-time.

Fulham FC statement:
The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of André-Frank Zambo Anguissa for an undisclosed fee from Olympique de Marseille.

The 22-year-old midfielder has penned a five-year-deal with Fulham, subject to a work permit being granted.

An imposing defensive midfield player, Anguissa spent his youth with Cotonsport in his native Cameroon and Stade de Reims, before moving to Marseille in the summer of 2015.

He quickly made his debut as a 19-year-old in the Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes as Marseille won 3-0 at FC Groningen.

Anguissa clocked up a further 11 appearances in 2015/16, and truly established himself the following term, featuring 35 times.

Last season was a very prosperous one for Marseille. In addition to finishing fourth, just one point off the Champions League places, they reached the Europa League Final. Anguissa played the full 90 minutes but Atletico Madrid proved to be too strong and claimed a 3-0 win.

He departs Marseille having made 106 appearances for the club.

Having made his debut for the full Cameroon side in March 2017, Anguissa was called up for their Confederations Cup squad that summer, playing practically every minute of the campaign and scoring in a 1-1 draw with Australia.

Anguissa said: “I am delighted to have signed for Fulham today. This is a new chapter in my career and one I’m really looking forward to.

“I hope to bring my qualities to this new project. I like a challenge and I will ensure that I give my very best to my team, the Club, and the supporters.”

Tony Khan said: “I’m thrilled to announce that Fulham Football Club has signed André Zambo Anguissa. André’s tremendous data profile, his glowing scouting reports, and his sterling reputation confirm his world class talent.

“Throughout this summer, we’ve pursued elite players on whom we believed we could rely to deliver the quality required to challenge the great competition we’ll face in the Premier League, and thus, Andre has been one of our top targets.

“We are very excited that he’s joining the Club! Come on Fulham!”
