Johnson joins Everton

5:41 am on 8 August 2008

Striker Andrew Johnson has finalised his transfer from Everton to Fulham for 10 million pounds on a four-year contract.

The 27-year-old England international will play alongside fellow new signing Bobby Zamora at Craven Cottage after finding himself all but frozen out on Merseyside following the arrival of Ayegbeni Yakubu from Middlesbrough last summer.

Fulham's ambition for the new campaign has been such that Johnson arrived as their 11th signing of the close season, and he could partner fellow new boy Bobby Zamora in the season ahead.
