Fulham new boy Iwobi involved in full training, Bassey delighted to reunite with Super Eagles teammate 

Alex Iwobi trained fully with his new Fulham teammates on Thursday ahead of their Premier League meeting with  Luton Town. 


The Nigeria national teamer ended his four-year association with Everton on deadline day after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Cottagers until June 30, 2028.


Before his move to the London club, Iwobi was not called up for Everton's matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League and Doncaster Rovers in the League Cup as he was recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered at Aston Villa on August 20.


Injury or not, Iwobi was ineligible to make his Fulham debut against Manchester City as his transfer was not completed in time for him to be named in the traveling squad to the Etihad Stadium. 


The injury prevented him from adding to his 63 international caps for the Super Eagles when they took on São Tomé and Príncipe in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium on Sunday.


Iwobi has seemingly recovered from the injury, given that he participated in all the activities during the training session without any issues. 


The Hale End Academy product was involved in running exercises and also worked with the ball during the rondo session. 


Calvin Bassey, back from Super Eagles duty, was immensely delighted to reunite with his international teammate Iwobi. 


As soon as Bassey spotted Iwobi, the central defender gave him a big hug and briefly chatted with him before the start of the season. 


Fulham boss Marco Silva will observe Iwobi on Friday again before deciding whether or not to include him in the matchday squad for the visit of the Hatters.
