Slavisa Jokanovic has two new signings to boost his Fulham squad.

Fulham have completed a double swoop on French club Nice, securing the signings of midfielder Jean-Michael Seri and defender Maxime le Marchand.

Twenty-six-year-old Ivory Coast international Seri, who has been linked with a whole host of clubs across Europe, has signed a four-year contract with the Cottagers, while Le Marchand has also penned a long-term deal.

Seri had spent the last three seasons with Nice, while Le Marchand also joined the club in the summer of 2015, having previously made his name at Le Havre.

They become the first two major arrivals at Craven Cottage since Fulham secured a return to the Premier League by claiming a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Championship play-ff final in May.

Cottagers co-owner Tony Khan told the club's official website: "Jean-Michael arrives with Premier League qualities, as well as great promise for the future, which is why he has been at the very top of our target list for a long time.

"I trust all Fulham supporters are collectively as thrilled and ecstatic as we are that Jean-Michael will be joining our squad as we return to the Premier League.

"Strengthening our squad is always a priority. In that spirit, we've done a lot of work on Maxime and believe that his skills and versatility will be valuable assets."

Fulham are currently priced at 1/750 to be relegated next season, with Brighton available at 33/1 and Crystal Palace 80/1.
