Fulham sign Kelly from Birmingham

Roy Hodgson has signed young Irish full back, Stephen Kelly from Birmingham City to bring in his first signing of the summer.

Kelly who earlier has been part of Premiership sides with Spurs and Birmingham.

The 25 year old Irishman would stay with Cottagers till 2012 and would officially become a Fulham player from July 1.

Fulham who finished their best league position earlier in the season and have qualified for the Europa League would welcome a youngster to bolster their squad.

Same sentiments were expressed by Kelly who was delighted to be part of an improving team.

I'm happy that my transfer to Fulham has been finalised today (Tuesday) and I can look forward to meeting with the rest of the team for pre-season preparation in July.
he told the clubs official website.

Hodgson also maintained that this was one of the many signings this summer.

I am delighted that Stephen has become our first signing of the summer transfer window.

He is a talented young full-back with experience of playing in the Premier League as well as competing at international level.

He will be a useful addition as we look to improve our squad ahead of the start of next season and I am hopeful that we will be able to announce further additions in the coming weeks.
