The 23-year-old will make the move across London in order to gain regular first-team football at the Championship club.

He made his debut for the Blues against Arsenal in the League Cup in October 2013 before making his first Premier League start away to Liverpool later that season, but has found it hard to break into the first team on a consistent basis.

The central defender or right-back had a similar loan spell with recently promoted Middlesbrough on an 18-month deal as he helped them to secure promotion to the Premier League last season, playing 30 times in all competitions.

Kalas told the Fulham website: “They were really active to reach me. I’m happy to sign for the club because when you see the interest, that’s one of the most important things. Hopefully we can get promotion, or at least the play-offs.”

Kalas is a Czech Republic international, winning the first of his three caps in November 2012 against Slovakia.
