Greening Joins

Monday 24 August 2009

Fulham Football Club can today confirm the season-long loan signing of Jonathan Greening from West Bromwich Albion which, it is anticipated, will become a permanent move next summer.

The 30-year-old midfielder joined West Bromwich Albion from Middlesbrough in July 2004. Earlier in his career he spent more than three seasons at Manchester United, when he secured a £1m move to Old Trafford from York City in 1998.

Greening was nominated West Bromwich Albion’s player of the season for 2005-06 and the previous season after he helped his side pull off a dramatic escape from relegation from the Premier League, when the ‘Baggies’ were at the bottom of the table going into their final match.

His outstanding performances didn’t go unnoticed as he was given the captain’s armband at the beginning of the 2007-08 season under former manager Tony Mowbray after featuring regularly in midfield. He has been a consistent player in the West Bromwich Albion side and has made 224 appearances since joining at the Hawthorns.
