FULHAM have confirmed that they have signed Bradford City goalkeeper Matt Clarke in a one-month loan deal.

The 27-year-old, who is due back from holiday on Saturday, will fly straight out to join Fulham in Luxembourg where they are playing a friendly next week.

Clarke is likely to be given the chance of winning a permanent switch to the Premiership new boys, if he impresses manager Jean Tigana during his month-long spell at Craven Cottage.

Fulham currently have Northern Ireland international Maik Taylor as their number one, with inexperienced American Marcus Hahnemann and youngster Glynn Taylor as back up and Clarke will be hoping that he can provide some much-needed competition for places.
Clarke lost favour at Bradford last year after failing to agree a new contract at Valley Parade and spent the latter part of the season on loan at Bolton.
A number of clubs have been linked with Clarke, who has been very impressive for The Bantams in recent seasons, and even Liverpool and Arsenal were credited with interest in the past.
However, Bradford are now looking to offload the wantaway shot-stopper and could allow him to leave for less than £1 million.
