Fulham have sealed the capture of highly-rated Australian forward Ahmad Elrich.

The 24-year-old Australia international trained with Fulham early last month and manager Chris Coleman wasted little time in deciding to pursue a deal.

Elrich is understood to have agreed a three-year deal with the West London outfit, who have struck an accord with the player's current club Busan I’Park.

The former Parramatta Power star was out of contract later this year, so the Koreans have accepted what is believed to be a nominal fee for Elrich.

The move will now be finalised subject to the player receiving a work permit and it is not anticipated that there will be any problems, which will then allow Elrich to join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training next month.

Fulham fans will have an early chance to see what they are getting as Elrich is featuring for Australia against New Zealand in a friendly at Craven Cottage on Thursday evening.
