edric Soares has described the desire he felt to sign for Fulham after finally completing a deadline day loan switch from Arsenal.

Weeks of talks culminated in a six-month move confirmed after Tuesday’s transfer deadline for the January window.

“I feel great,” Cedric told the club website.

“I wanted this deal to happen, so we all pushed in the same direction, and I’m really happy and pleased to be here.

“Me and my family are really, really happy for this move. It’s a great move and I can’t wait to start.”

No purchase option has been agreed as part of the deal with Arsenal happy to let the Portuguese defender go after Ben White’s successful conversion to right-back and the signing of Jakub Kiwior.

“I’m excited to welcome Cedric Soares to Fulham on loan for the remainder of the season,” said Fulham owner Tony Khan.

“Cedric has great experience against top competition, in international matches and in the Premier League. I’m pleased that we were able to reach an agreement with Arsenal to bring him to Fulham, and I’m excited for Cedric to flourish under the great coaching of Marco Silva.

“We’re very happy with the work that we’ve done in this window, and look forward to the rest of the season ahead.”
