Mawson seals Fulham move

First team

Alfie Mawson has joined Fulham for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

The defender was a consistent performer during his two-year spell at Swansea City, who he joined from Barnsley in a £5 million deal.

Although initially he had to be patient in his bid to land a place in the Swans first team, Mawson seized his opportunity when it came.

He became a mainstay of the side under Paul Clement as the Swans pulled clear of relegation danger in 2016-17.

And Mawson played every minute of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, with his impressive club form earning him a call-up to the England squad in the spring.

Mawson has been linked with a number of clubs following the Swans’ relegation to the Championship, and it is Fulham who have secured his signature.

Former Brentford and Wycombe defender Mawson departs having made 71 appearances and scoring seven goals for the Swans.

He had a knee operation in May, but is expected to be fully fit soon.

Mawson joins a Fulham side who are back in the Premier League having won the Championship play-offs last term, with the move seeing him return to his native South-East. 

He has signed a four-year deal at Craven Cottage.

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Alfie for his service and wish him well in his future career.
