Fulham sign Karagounis on free
Fulham have confirmed the signing of Greece captain Giorgos Karagounis on a free transfer.
Karagounis, who has 120 caps for his country, has agreed a contract that will keep him at Craven Cottage until the end of the season.
He told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have signed for Fulham Football Club and I am excited by a new challenge in England and the Barclays Premier League. I'm looking forward to working under Martin Jol and playing alongside some fantastic players at this club."
The 35-year-old midfielder, a member of the Greece squad that shocked the continent by winning Euro 2004, has spent most of his career with Panathanikos in his homeland, but has also had spells with Inter Milan and Benfica.
His new manager, Martin Jol, was ecstatic to get a player he believes will add a lot to his Fulham side.
"Giorgos Karagounis has a wealth of club and international experience and I'm happy that he's joined us for this season," Jol said. "He's been an influential player for his club sides and is a renowned player in world football as he's about to become the most-capped player for Greece. He brings many certain qualities to our squad."
