Bodurov happy to be a Cottager

Bulgarian defender Nikolay Bodurov has called his transfer to Fulham as a "dream move."

The 28-year-old centre-back, capped by his country 24 times, joined the Sky Bet Championship on a three-year deal from Litex Lovech in his homeland.

After training with his new team-mates at their training base in Austria, he told the club's website: "I'm very happy to have signed. It's a moment that I've wanted for a long time. It's a dream of mine.

"I see a good team here - the training camp has been good so far. Everything is very professional here and I think that we have everything we need to have a very successful season."Bodurov has a wealth of experience behind him, with over 350 professional club appearances, playing in UEFA Champions League qualifying and Europa League matches. Coming into the prime of his career, Bodurov feels he can still improve his game and he cites Felix Magath as key in luring him to Craven Cottage, with the belief he can flourish under the German manager.

"He (Magath) is a very good coach who has had many successes in football, and for any footballer I think it would be a great pleasure to work with a coach like him.

"I'll be fighting for a starting position in the team, but everything is down to the coach. I'm here to work and train and show what I have and what I can do."
