Fulham have signed goalkeeper Joe Lewis on a season-long loan from Championship rivals Cardiff City.

The 27-year-old spent most of last season on loan at Blackpool, where he made 36 appearances.

Lewis will provide cover for Marcus Bettinelli, who damaged knee ligaments in Fulham's 2-1 defeat at Hull.

"There's real potential here. Fulham were recently in the Premier League and you just feel that the club is ready to be back there," he said.

"I'm delighted. It all happened quite quickly. Obviously Marcus got injured and the club saw that it was a bad one and acted to get some cover," Lewis added, speaking to the club website.external-link

Lewis joined Cardiff from Peterborough United in 2012, but has only made five appearances for the Bluebirds.
