The Club is delighted to announce the transfer deadline day signing of Gohi Cyriac on loan for the remainder of the season.

The striker arrives from Belgian Pro League outfit KV Oostende, with an option to buy at the end of the deal.

Cyriac began his career in his native Ivory Coast with ASEC Mimosas, where his goal scoring form caught the eye of Belgian champions Standard Liege, who moved to sign him in January 2009.

During his time with the club he was given a first taste of UEFA Champions League football in a 2-0 defeat by Arsenal at the Emirates in November 2009, while he helped them reach the Round of 16 in the 2011/12 Europa League.

After three-and-a-half years in Liege, Cyriac moved to divisional rivals Anderlecht in the summer of 2012, with the club going on to win the title in his first two seasons.

In the summer of 2015, Cyriac moved to Oostende and scored 14 times in 33 appearances in his debut campign.

A full Ivory Coast international, the 26-year-old has netted once in six appearances for his country.

“I am very happy to be at Fulham,” he told the official website. “From a young age I have wanted to play in the Premier League, and I believe I can do that with this club.

“I am a striker, I am quick, and my number one target is to score goals. I hope to do that for Fulham so that we can have a good rest of the season.”
