As reported earlier in the week goalkeeper Jordan Archer has signed for Fulham following the conclusion of his short-term deal with Oxford United.

The goalkeeper, who was a free agent, played eight games for Karl Robinson's side in a four-week deal as cover for Simon Eastwood.

It expired earlier this month, but Archer's spell with the U's helped get him back in the spotlight after spending the first half of the season without a club.

He has signed a contract with Fulham until the end of the campaign, with the club holding the option of a 12-month extension.

Fulham FC statement
The Club is pleased to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Jordan Archer on a free transfer.

Archer, 26, has agreed a deal that keeps him at Fulham until the end of the season, with the Club holding an option to extend by a further 12 months.

Speaking to the official website, Archer said: “I’ve been watching a lot of Championship football this year, and Fulham are playing good, attractive football.

“There are top quality players here, so to be a part of this group is something I couldn’t turn down.”

Tony Khan added: “I’m happy to welcome Jordan to Fulham, adding more depth in this position with a player who has a lot of Championship experience is very positive, and I know he’ll get the best welcome from everyone within the Club and in the stands. Come on Fulham!”

After coming through Tottenham Hotspur’s academy, Archer sampled first team football during a number of loan spells, before a permanent move to Millwall in the summer of 2015.

Archer immediately established himself as the Lions’ number one, winning their player of the season award in his maiden campaign.

The following year he was a key figure in their promotion to the Championship, and he departed the Den at the end of last season having made 166 appearances for the club.

He took in a short term deal with Oxford United recently, securing three clean sheets in six league outings.

Capped at senior level by Scotland, Archer made his international debut in May 2018.
