Celta Vigo captain Hugo Mallo hints at Fulham snub

Celta Vigo captain Hugo Mallo suggests that he turned down an offer to join Premier League new boys Fulham in favour of staying with his current club this summer.

Hugo Mallo has suggested that he turned down an offer to join Fulham in favour of staying with current club Celta Vigo this summer.

The right-back, who captains the La Liga side, was believed to be a target for the Premier League new boys ahead of transfer deadline day last Thursday.

In the end, Fulham signed Manchester United full-back Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan as director of football operations Tony Khan revealed that he "decided to go in a different direction and pursue someone else".

Mallo, who signed a new five-year contract at Celta this week, told Spanish newspaper Marca: "I knew the figures I was going to earn at Fulham, but in life it's not all about money and my aim was to continue at Celta. That's why the deal [to sign a new contract] was so quick and easy."

The Cottagers fell to a 2-0 defeat in their opening game of the Premier League season at home to Crystal Palace.
