Antonee Robinson apparently was on his way to Milan last January, but as Milan was unable to complete the medical on time, the deadline day deal already collapsed in Italy.
However, on Thursday, Aug. 20 Robinson got his move to a top-flight club as the U.S. men’s national team player announces he’d left Wigan to join Fulham in the Premier League.
“I’m made up to be a Fulham player,” Robinson said in a statement about the club. “I was really excited to get down here and get all signed. I can’t wait until the lads get back in here to get going. I heard a few days ago that Scott Parker was interested in me and wanted to have a personal conversation with me. We had a call to the zoom, and he was really keen on getting the deal done and making me a Fulham player. Fulham plays a really nice football style and I can perfectly see myself fitting in.”
Fulham paid the left-back €2.1 million which has a market value of € 3.5 million.
For the U.S. national men’s team Robinson already made seven appearances, he was born in England and has a U.S. passport through his father.
“I am pleased to announce that Antonee Robinson joined Fulham Football Club on a multi-year contract agreement,” said owner Tony Khan. “Antonee is a big young addition to our squad for our return to the Premier League.”
