Arsenal midfielder Thomas Eisfeld has joined Championship side Fulham in a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.
The 21-year-old German moved to the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in January 2012 but has found first team opportunities few and far between at the Emirates.
The high point of Eisfeld’s short N5 career was a neatly taken equaliser against West Bromwich Albion in last season’s Capital One Cup and he was also on the pitch the year before when Arsenal staged their remarkable comeback from 4-0 down to win 7-5 in the same competition against Reading.
Eisfeld moves across London to join forces with compatriot Felix Magath, the former Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich coach who failed to keep Fulham up last term, and pens a two-year contract with the option of a 12-month extension.
Good luck to the young man, he looks like he’s got what it takes to play at a high level…he just needs game time.
