Fulham loan Roma's Okaka

Fulham have completed the signing of Stefano Okaka on loan from Roma until the end of the season.

The Italy U-21 striker completed a medical at Fulham's training ground last week and the club confirmed the signing in a statement on their website this morning.

The loan deal appeared to be in doubt two weeks ago when Okaka picked up an injury but Fulham manager Roy Hodgson stepped up his pursuit of the striker after Andy Johnson and Clint Dempsey both picked up knocks in recent weeks.
