Fulham have signed Spanish midfielder Jozabed Sanchez after weeks of negotiation.

So what do you get for a reported £3 million these days? This provides food for thought.

His skills and strengths

Like a lot of La Liga talents his short passing and explosive play in the vital final third are key to his game.

But Sanchez can also ping corners on a sixpence, use his head well, and hammer goals from distance.

His long-range passing also picks out an intended target more often than not.

He knows all about relegation battles

Sanchez was with a second tier outfit called Real Taen in 2014. Despite, four goals and 12 assists - they got relegated. He then joined Rayo Vallecano, supplying 10 goals and three more assists - but yes, they got relegated too this last campaign.

So far, it looks as if he won't be three times unlucky.

It might be a week or so before we see Sanchez in action

He raced up the Cottage steps to see his new side beat Newcastle last week, but he's done next to nothing pre-season, and in the new Fulham fitness purge, he needs to get his head down at the training ground.

See you soon, Jozabed.

This is how do you pronounce his first name

Forget 'J' as in Jack - think 'H' as in happy.
