Greece captain Giorgos Karagounis has
signed for Fulham on a free transfer, the Premier League club
announced on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old midfielder joins after leaving Panathinaikos
and told Fulham's website he was excited to
be plying his trade in England.
"I'm delighted to have signed for Fulham Football Club and I
am excited by a new challenge in England and the Premier
League," Karagounis said.
"I'm looking forward to working under Martin Jol and playing
alongside some fantastic players at this club."
Fulham's midfield stock had been depleted during the
transfer window with manager Jol losing Moussa Dembele and Clint
Dempsey to London rivals and his former team Tottenham Hotspur.
Karagounis, who has also played for Inter Milan and Benfica,
was part of the Greek team which won the 2004 European
Championship in Portugal.
