Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Adam Taggart from Australia A-League side Newcastle Jets, for an undisclosed fee.

Taggart signs a three-year deal that will see him at the Club until at least summer 2017.

The 21-year-old international striker has scored three goals in seven appearances for Australia, having previously represented his country at U20 to U23 level.

He was selected to represent the Socceroos at this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil, making his tournament debut as a substitute in the narrow 3-2 defeat by the Netherlands, before starting their final group game against Spain.

Adam started his senior career at Perth Glory in 2010 and spent two seasons at the Western Australian club.

He joined Newcastle Jets in 2012, netting 18 times in 44 appearances. Of those goals, 16 came last season, earning him many accolades; the A-League Golden Boot, A-League Young Footballer of the Year and inclusion into the 2013/14 A-League PFA Team of the Season.
