Tiger Punch, September 28. In 2018, the former Barcelona defender who joined Sassuolo with a transfer fee of 6 million, the Brazilian Malone became another person who said goodbye in the medical examination room. Sources from The Athletic UK stated that Malone failed to pass the physical examination prepared by Premier League club Fulham for him.
Although coach Scott Parker and boss Khan said that signing a central defender is Fulham's current top priority, Malone, who had been negotiated to join Fulham with a transfer fee of 13 million pounds, ultimately failed.
After the deal fell through, Fulham's backup candidates for the central defender were Turin's Bremer, Tottenham's Voith and Watford's Craig Dawson.
