The 16-year-old, a goalkeeper who has previously featured for both Chelsea and Real Madrid's youth teams - clubs managed by his father, said he has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Fulham.

"Proud to say that I signed my two-year scholarship deal with Fulham FC... Thank you to everyone who supported me, I'll make you proud," Mourinho junior said on Instagram next to a picture of him signing the paperwork.
