Fulham manager Martin Jol has expressed his delight at fighting off a host of clubs to secure youngster Pajtim Kasami's signature.

The 19-year-old joined from Serie A club Palermo this week, signing a four-year deal with the Craven Cottage outfit in the process.

Jol accepts many Premier League fans will be unaware of the teenage talent, although he is of the firm belief that will change this season.

Kasami has emerged as one of Serie A's brightest talents and the Dutch tactician knows the club have a quality youngster on their hands.

Talent

"Not everybody in England will know [how highly thought of he is]," explained Jol.

"He is a great talent and there were a few other clubs - big clubs as well - after him. It was nice to snatch him from other clubs' grasp.

"He is 19 but, on the other hand, he played more than 20 matches for Palermo in Serie A.

"He was probably the youngest player there that played so many games so I think he can play in our team now. He will play a big part this season."
