Fulham manager Martin Jol has announced that Czech Under-21 international Marcel Gecov has joined from Slovan Liberec for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old impressed during the summer's Under-21 European Championships and has been on the Cottagers' radar for the past year.

Gecov has penned a two-year deal with the club after successfully passing a medical.

"He's signed and I am happy with him," said Jol. "He is a very talented player.

"Good midfield player and played against England [in the Under-21 European Championships] and got two assists so he is full of confidence.

"He knows he can play against English teams and that helps. He signed the contract yesterday. He had a very good tournament and was very decisive in games.

"That gave us confidence and he has been on our radar for at least a year.

"The Fulham scouts knew him and had very good reports on him."

The deal is reportedly worth £700,000 and Jol believes Gecov is a good addition to the Cottagers' squad.

"He is a typical midfield player and he is relatively young," he added. "He is aggressive and, as I've said, I am happy he is on board."
