Young defender Liam Donnelly joined Fulham from IFA Premiership side Dungannon Swifts.

Donnelly can play at right-back and in the centre of the defence; tenacious in the tackle and dogged in the pursuit of his opponent, the youngster provides defensive assurance.

His contributions as captain were crucial as Fulham's Under-18s reached the Final of the FA Youth Cup in 2013/14. He also made 19 appearances in the league, scoring twice.

His excellent season was concluded with full international recognition, as he represented Northern Ireland for the first time - coming on as a substitute against Chile.

In 2014/15 after overcoming injury, Donnelly was named on the First Team bench for the first time, and signed a contract extension in the summer keeping him at the Club until June 2016.

He scored his first goal for the senior side in a 3-1 win at Crawley Town, and subsequently joined the Red Devils on a one-month youth loan deal, which was later extended until January. He was, however, recalled by Fulham in October.
