Martin Jol, who has so far had a quiet summer in the transfer market since succeeding Mark Hughes as Fulham boss, said: "Pajtim is a young, talented midfielder who has potential, so we are very excited about signing him on a four-year contract.

"He is a versatile midfield player who can adapt quite easily to more than one position. He is a key player in the Swiss Under-21 team.

"I am delighted to have been able to add two talented young players to my squad with the signing of Pajtim Kasami today, and Marcel Gecov last week, as I believe that they are going to be good additions to the squad both in the short and long term future."

Kasami, 19, broke into Palermo's first team last season and was part of the Switzerland side that lost to Spain in the final of this summer's 2011 Under-21 European Championship.
