The Australian winger moves up from the Championship to become the Cottagers' second signing of deadline day, following the addition of Pavel Pogrebnyak

Fulham have signed midfielder Ryan Williams from Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old is a product of the Pompey academy and signs a two-and-a-half-year deal with the London club.

Wiliams made six appearances for the Portsmouth first-team this season, after making his debut against his brother Rhys in a 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough.

On Monday, Williams enjoyed a run-out for his new club's reserve team as they beat Wolves 1-0 at Telford.

Portsmouth boss Michael Appleton believes that joining Martin Jol's Cottagers was a prospect the youngster couldn't turn down.

He told the club's official website: "This is a good opportunity for Ryan to move to an established Premier League outfit and we wish him all the best for the future.”
