Biography

On January Deadline Day 2018, the Club confirmed the signing of Cyrus Christie from Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee.

The right-back, who can also play on the wing, penned a three-and-a-half year deal, keeping him at Craven Cottage until at least the summer of 2021, with a Club option to extend by a further 12 months.

Christie came through the academy at hometown club Coventry City, and went on to make 119 appearances for the Sky Blues after making his senior debut as a 17-year-old, taking in loan spells at Nuneaton Town and Hinckley United along the way.

Following the expiry of his Coventry contract in the summer of 2014, Christie stepped up a division to join Derby County, making 45 appearances in his debut season at Pride Park.

He spent two more seasons there, and by the time he left to join Boro last summer for a reported £2.5m he’d coincidentally played 119 times for the Rams, also.

The attack-minded defender racked up 26 appearances for the Teessiders in the first half of the season, scoring his only goal for the club in their 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage in September.

Eligible for the Republic of Ireland through his Dublin-born grandmother, Christie won his first international cap in November 2014. A member of their 2016 European Championship squad, he has now represented his country 15 times and scored two goals.

Tony Khan said at the time: “I am very excited to welcome Cyrus into the Fulham family on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

“He is a fantastic young player who brings both an international pedigree and a wealth of Championship experience with him. I can't wait for him to join us and help the squad continue to push for promotion.”
