Fulham star Neskens Cobano agrees deal with Emirates after contract expires


Neeskens Kebano has agreed to join Emirates club Al Jazira just days after leaving Fulham, Sources told Football Insider.

The 31-year-old winger left Craven Cottage at the end of June after his contract expired.

Now a free agent, Kebano Has agreed terms to join Al Jazira before the start of the 2023/24 season.

The DRC international has spent seven years at Craven Cottage since first joining Fulham in the summer of 2016.



Cobano has been involved in three promotions from the Championship to the top flight during his time at the London club, including Fulham’s title-winning campaign in 2021/22.

Kebano, who will leave Fulham this summer, has scored 24 goals and provided 18 assists in 160 appearances for the team.

However, his playing time became limited in 2022/23 under Marco Silva, with the Portuguese boss giving the winger just 17 league appearances.

Kebano started the season as one of Fulham’s first-choice wingers, making 12 of his first 13 league games.

However, he suffered a severe Achilles tendon rupture in November, which sidelined him for most of the season.

Kebano returned to the first team in April but failed to start Fulham’s final eight games of the season.

Outside of Silva’s plans at Fulham, Cobano has now turned his attention to three-time UAE Pro League champions Al Jazira.

The Abu Dhabi-based club, which last won the league title in 2020/21, is owned by Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour.
