Fulham have confirmed the signing of Bjorn Helge Riise from Norwegian side Lillestrom on a three-year contract.

The Cottagers have announced the completion of the deal, with Riise, brother of Roma defender John Arne, arriving for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old told the club's official website: "It is a dream come true for me to have signed for Fulham and I am looking forward to joining the team for pre-season training now the agreement is complete.

"Obviously I know Brede (Hangeland) and Erik (Nevland) very well from the national team and they have only good things to say about the club.

"Fulham had a fantastic season last year under Roy Hodgson who is a manager I admire very much, his record in Scandinavia speaks for itself and I am very excited about working with him over the coming months and to being part of Fulham Football Club at such an exciting time."
