Tom Cairney has revealed that joining Fulham from Blackburn Rovers this summer came as a "little bit of a surprise" to him.
The 24-year-old made 80 appearances for the Lancashire outfit before signing a four-year deal at Craven Cottage in June.
Cairney, who harbours hopes of earning a senior Scotland call-up, is confident that his former club can recover from their slow start to the campaign.
"I'd heard little bits about it towards the end of last season but it was still a little bit of a surprise," he told Get West London.
"I suppose the big moves drag out a little bit because you're talking about extortionate amounts of money but mine went through quite quickly.
"It's not been the best start, but I don't worry about [Blackburn] and I think they'll be fine. They've kept Jordan Rhodes, which is massive, and I think they've still got a good back-four."
Fulham, boosted by their first away win of the season last time out, play host to Rovers on Sunday afternoon.
