Fulham loan defender Pierre Wome has signed for Espanyol after the Cameroon ace snub the overtures of VFB Stuttgart to move to Spain.

Wome arrives at Montjuic on a free transfer from Bologna after spending last season on loan at Premiership outfit Fulham.

The left back has signed a two-year contract with Espanyol and confirmed the deal was signed and sealed.

"I have reached an agreement and everything is closed," stated Wome.

The African was delighted to link up with Espanyol and a chat with coach Javier Clemente reassured him he was making the right decision.

German side Stuttgart also offered Wome a deal but despite the prospect of Champions League football, the defender wanted to test himself in La Liga.

He added: "I wanted to speak with the coach because the knowledge of what he wanted from me was important. The situation at the club was explained to me.

"To come to Montjuic is an advanced step in my career because I will participate in a league full of stars.

"There was the possibility of a move to Stuttgart, who will play in the Champions League, but in this club I can grow more."
