OFFICIAL: Fulham sign Karagounis
- Updated: September 11, 2012
Fulham have signed Greece international Giorgos Karagounis on a free transfer, it has been confirmed by the London club.
The 35 year-old, who captained his country to the quarter-finals of Euro 2012, has signed with the English Premier League side until the end of the season.
Previously linked with OFI Crete after he failed to renew his contract with Athenian giants Panathinaikos, Karagounis will move to England for the first time in his career.
Having previously played for both Inter Milan and Benfica in Italy and Portugal respectively, the midfielder has now secured a dream move to the Premier League.
“I’m delighted to have signed for Fulham and I am excited by a new challenge in England and the Barclays Premier League,” Karagounis said.
“I’m looking forward to working under Martin Jol and playing alongside some fantastic players at this club.”
On the cusp of becoming Greece’s most-capped player of all time, it remains to be seen whether Karagounis is aiming to prolong his career enough so that he can feature at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
As it stands he is not part of Fernando Santos’ regular squad, though a successful stint in England might see him return to the international fold.
