Perth Glory have confirmed that teenager Riley Warland has secured a dream three-year deal with English Premier League club Fulham.
The 16-year-old youth international will call Craven Cottage home after being snapped up for an undisclosed fee.
Football West announced the move in June but the A-League outfit has only now gone public with the deal.
Warland joined the WA outfit's Development Centre in 2011 and progressed through Glory's NPL Academy before making the bench in the A-League.
Perth's Football Director Jacob Burns said the move represented a "fantastic opportunity" for the young defender.

🇦🇺 No, it’s not Mitrovic, but Fulham have signed 15 year old defender Riley Warland from Perth Glory.
At just 15, he’s been capped at youth level for Australia, played for the u21’s at Perth and made the bench for the senior squad.

"While it is sad to see a young prospect depart, he goes with our very best wishes," Burns said.
"He has been with the club since the age of nine and his progress is a testament to the hard work of every coach he has worked under within our two-star Academy here at Glory, as well as to his own hard work and dedication.
"Riley joins a lengthy list of players who have followed the clear pathway that exists within our Academy structure and gone on to earn opportunities at top overseas clubs".
