Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the permanent signing of Bulgarian international defender Nikolay Bodurov.

The 28-year-old has penned a contract to play for the Whites until the summer of 2017, with an additional one-year option, and he joins up with Felix Magath's squad at their training camp in Innsbruck, Austria.

Bodurov made 125 appearances for his hometown club, Pirin Blagoevgrad, before moving to Litex Lovech in 2009, where he went on to play 258 matches and score 10 goals to help his team lift the Bulgarian Championship on two occasions.

Bodurov, primarily a centre-back who can also play on the right side of defence, experienced playing in the UEFA Champions League qualifying round and the Europa League with the Oranges.

His performances earned international acclaim in October 2010, when then manager Lothar Matthäus handed him his international debut against Wales in Cardiff, and Bodurov has since collected 24 caps for Bulgaria.

The Club would like to welcome Nikolay and wishes him a successful playing career with the Whites.

Nikolay will be wearing number 6 and his shirt is available right now at the Online Store
