Olympiakos striker Kostas Mitroglou has inked a four-and-a-half year deal with Fulham.
The Cottagers have agreed to pay the Greek outfit upwards of £11m for his services.
The 25-year-old, who has netted 14 times in the Super League this season, has opted to help the relegated threatened English club remain in the top flight than lining up against another English club, Manchester United, in the Champions League round of 16.
I’m very happy that I’m here in the Premier League, and especially with Fulham which is a major club in the league,” Mitroglou told the club’s official website. “I’m here because I want to fulfill the Club’s targets and I want to help the Club achieve their goals. I was really flattered that they wanted me so badly and I’m really happy to be here.
“I’m really happy that I will work with René Meulensteen. I know that he has a lot of experience in football. He explained to me how he works and I am really looking forward to working with him.
“I also spoke to Giorgos [Karagounis] before I came here and he told me only the best things about Fulham.”
Mitroglou joined Olympiakos in 2007 and has 148 appearances, scoring 62 goals, in six seasons, on his way to clinching three Super League titles, three Greek Cups and one Greek Super Cup.
His three goals in the 3-0 win at Anderletch in the Uefa Champions League this season makes him the first Greek player to net a hat-trick in Europe’s elite competition. He also leads the goalscorers’ chart in the Greek league.
He has scored eight times in 28 appearances on international stage.
