Fulham have completed the signing of German international striker Andre Schurrle from Borussia Dortmund.

The former Chelsea striker joins Fulham on a two-year loan deal and will wear the number 14 shirt at Craven Cottage.

Schurrle arrives at the club with serious pedigree having frequently featured in the Champions League as well as being an integral part of Germany’s 2014 World Cup winning squad, appearing in 6 of their 7 games.

The 27-year-old famously grabbed a brace in the 7-1 thrashing of Brazil in the Semi-Final, before coming off the bench to set up Mario Götze for the winner in the Final against Argentina.

“I’m so happy to be here, I can’t wait to get started,” he told the club website. “Fulham were the first club that showed interest in me – that was something that I appreciated a lot, and one of the reasons I wanted to come here.

“I love ball possession, I love attacking, and I love making runs, so I think it could be perfect. I have to fight for my place and I have to show my quality so that I can be a member who really helps the team.”

The Premier League new boys have had a strong transfer window with Schurrle joining the likes of Jean-Michel Seri and Fabri at the Craven Cottage club.
