Premier League rules required that Fulham turn one of their existing two Premier League loans into a permanent agreement before they could make another loan signing. Leeds winger Dan James is also at the club but Duffy had six months remaining on his contract at Brighton, and Fulham have turned the remaining months of his stay into a permanent deal. Head coach Marco Silva had been eager to sign a right-back before the deadline to provide competition for Kenny Tete.
