Karagounis close to Fulham switch
- Updated: September 10, 2012
Giorgos Karagounis is on the verge of completing a free transfer to English Premier League side Fulham after a weekend of negotiations between the player and the Craven Cottage club.
The news broke late last week when Karagounis arrived in London to discuss a potential move to England after previously failing to reach an agreement with Panathinaikos over a contract extension at the Athens club. The 35-year-old loyal servant returned to Greece on Saturday to collect his belongings and on Sunday also took part in some light training with the Greek National Team at the Agios Kosmas training ground.
Karagounis is expected to depart for England on Monday, the same day he is expected to sign his contract with the London outfit before being presented to the media on either Monday or Tuesday.
The Greek international, who was left out of Greece’s squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Latvia and Lithuania after remaining without a club all summer, is seen as an ideal recruit to bolster a relatively youthful Fulham midfield — bar Damien Duff, Simon Davies and Mahamadou Diarra.
