Fulham youngster Jack Grimmer is excited by his move to the west London club.

The 18-year-old joined the Whites in January and his linked up with the Development Squad.

Grimmer made four appearances for Aberdeen but only tasted victory once, against Hibernian on May 14.

"I consider myself lucky to have come in and already played for the Development Squad in the short time that I've been here," Grimmer told the club's official site.

"It was expressed to me before I signed that if I did my thing and worked hard then I'll get my chance.

"It was a big deal to me because you don't come to a club where you've never got a chance of playing for the first team so that was a big factor [in signing]."

Grimmer is the youngest player to play for the Dons, as a 16 year old and he admitted that a move to Fulham was too good to turn down.

"I had to take all things into consideration," he said. "And I just didn't think I could pass up the opportunity of training with some of the best players around and being taught by coaches who have been there and done it all, which is what's happening at Fulham.

"Training is of a very high standard.

"We do a lot of attacking drills; it's very technical and tactically based so my knowledge of the game is already starting to improve."
