McDonald Joins Fulham

Midfielder thanks Wolves

Kevin McDonald has left Wolves after three years at the Club and joined Fulham.

McDonald moves to Craven Cottage for an undisclosed fee, and has signed a three year contract with a further one year option.

In his three seasons at Wolves he made 126 appearances, scoring eight goals.

McDonald joined Wolves from Sheffield United in August, 2013, and was a key figure in the Sky Bet League One title-winning season, winning both Fans’ and Players’ Player of the Year awards.

He remained a key part of the team which narrowly missed out on the Championship play-offs the following season, making 47 appearances, and made another 35 – scoring three goals – last season.

McDonald did find opportunities limited towards the end of the 2015/16 campaign with his last Wolves appearance coming in the win against Bristol City on March 8th.

He landed a couple of senior international call-ups for Scotland during his time at Molineux, but is yet to make his debut for his country.

McDonald said:  “After three years here I think the time is right for me to move on but I do that with some great memories of my time at Wolves.

"First of all I want to thank the fans, who have always been spot-on with me, right the way through.

"Even when I wasn't in the team, they were shouting for me to get back in, and I will always appreciate the support they have given me.

"I also want to thank the gaffer, who has been brilliant for me in bringing me to Wolves and giving me the opportunity to play.

"He then played me in 90% of the games over three years and was an influence on me over my time at the Club.

"I want to thank every single member of the staff, from all the coaches and physios through to the chef - every one of them has been amazing.

"But I would like to make a special mention for the Doc - Matt Perry - for helping me with some personal health issues during my time at the Club.

"I have enjoyed working with such a great bunch of players, and the day-to-day banter with them has been something else!

"Alongside that there was of course the season we got promoted, which was a massive highlight.

"Of course I will be looking out for Wolves results from now on, especially now the takeover has gone through.

"And I am already looking forward to seeing everyone again when I come back to Molineux next season.

"I have met some amazing people and made some great friends, not just in football but for life."
