Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the free transfer signing of Giorgos Karagounis until the end of this season.

The 35-year-old midfielder is captain of the Greece national side where he has made 120 appearances. He was a member of the team which won the 2004 European Championship in Portugal.

Karagounis became the joint highest-capped player for Greece last June, scoring the only goal against Russia which saw them qualify for the Quarter-Finals of Euro 2012.

He made a total of 380 appearances in two five-year spells at Panathinaikos. In between his time in Athens, he spent two seasons at both Internazionale and SL Benfica.

Karagounis has also made over 100 European (UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League) appearances for his clubs.

Speaking at Fulham’s Motspur Park Training Ground, Karagounis said: “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.”

Fulham Manager Martin Jol added: “Giorgos Karagounis has a wealth of club and international experience and I’m happy that he’s joined us for this season. 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.”
