Premier League new boys Fulham have strengthened their midfield options ahead of the new season, with the signing of Southampton pair Harrison Reid and Mario Lemina.

Reed played a key role on loan in their promotion campaign last season, and Scott Parker has opted to activate his purchase clause from the Saints.

Lemina also spent last year away from the St. Mary’s Stadium, on loan with Turkish side Besiktas.

However, after they declined to make his deal a permanent switch, Parker has swooped in to add some much needed experience to his squad.

The Cottagers have been busy in the transfer market in recent weeks, with Anthony Knockaert and Antonee Robinson joining the club, and Parker is expected to add a few more new faces before the season kick off.
