Cairney, who has six Under-21 caps after qualifying to play for Scotland through his dad, moved to Blackburn on loan from Hull City before making the switch permanent last summer.

The playmaker made a total of 85 appearances for the Championship club.

Cairney said: “I’m delighted. Fulham is a very attractive club to come to.

“For most of my life, Fulham have been a Premier League club and have only been out of it for a year.

“Every player wants to play in the Premier League and if I can do that with Fulham that would be fantastic.”
