(Reuters) - Fulham have signed Spanish goalkeeeper Fabricio Agosto Ramirez ‘Fabri’ from Turkish side Besiktas on a three-year contract, the newly-promoted Premier League club said on Tuesday.

British media reported Fulham paid around 5 million pounds for the 30-year-old, who kept 12 clean sheets in 34 league outings for Besiktas last season.

The London club also hold a option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.

“I’m very happy to have the opportunity to be in the Premier League with Fulham,” Fabri told the club website. “Everything is very positive for me and I want to take the opportunity to make the most of this goal of being in the Premier League.”

Fabri is reunited with Fulham’s goalkeeping coach Jose Sambade Carreira, who he worked with at Deportivo la Coruna.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s Fulham will kick off their league campaign at home against Crystal Palace on Aug. 11.
