Fulham have completed the signing of South Africa midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi after receiving international clearance.

The 24-year-old signed from Golden Arrows, for an undisclosed fee, and has signed a two-year deal with the Premier League club.

He told his club's official website: "I am so happy that my transfer to Fulham has been finalised. I have spent most of the summer training with the players and getting to know them and all of the coaching staff.

"I have been given a wonderful chance to be part of a fantastic team playing in one of the best leagues in the world, this is something very special to me and an opportunity that I am going to grab with both hands."

Dikgacoi, part of South Africa's squad for the 2008 African Nations Cup, played in all five of South Africa's Confederations Cup matches this summer and has made 28 appearances for his country since breaking into the international scene two years ago.
