Giorgos Karagounis: Veteran Greece international has signed for Fulham
Fulham have completed the signing of veteran Greece midfielder Giorgos Karagounis.
As revealed by skysports.com last week, Fulham were lining up a move for Karagounis to bolster their midfield options.
The 35-year-old, who has over 100 caps to his name, has penned a deal at Craven Cottage until the end of the season.
Karagounis has spent most of his career with Panathinaikos, enjoying two spells with the Athens giants, while also spending stints at Inter Milan and Benfica.
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."
Cottagers boss Jol told the club's official website: "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."
