The Club is pleased to announce the arrival of left-back Scott Malone, in a swap deal that sees Jazz Richards move to Cardiff City.

The 25-year-old joins Fulham on a two-year deal, with a Club option for an additional 12 months.

He scored five goals in 32 league appearances during his time on the South Coast.

He made the switch to Millwall that summer and was voted Player of the Season runner-up in 2013/14 as he helped the Lions to safety in the Sky Bet Championship.

In January 2015, he signed for Cardiff on a two-and-a-half-year deal, making 54 league appearances for the Bluebirds, the first of which was against Fulham.

A former England youth international, Malone made six appearances for the Under-19 team.

Furthermore, we would like to wish Jazz the best of luck in his native Wales, and thank him for his efforts during his time at Fulham.
