“Tossin has received positive ratings from our data team and our coaches, and most importantly Tossin himself wanted to join us badly, and he will come and play for our club! Come on Fulham!” !”
The prolific Adarabio has spent the last two seasons on loan with West Brom and Blackburn in the Championship, impressing himself enough to make the move to the Premier League.
