London: Fulham's new owner Shahid 'Shad' Khan vowed to build on the foundations left by Mohamed Al Fayed as the Pakistan-born billionaire arrived at Craven Cottage for the first time on Saturday following his takeover.

Khan, who also owns NFL team Jacksonville Jaguars, struck an agreement with Al Fayed on Friday that put the Premier League club under new ownership for the first time in 16 years.

The 62-year-old is reported to have paid around £150 million for 100 per cent control and he met the media for the first time on Saturday.
