Mitroglou was taken to Craven Cottage in January for £12million, but saw injury restrict him to just three appearances.

He was drafted in to aid a survival bid, but a lack of outings contributed to Fulham tumbling out of the Premier League.

It was expected that a man who graced the World Cup finals this summer would be among those offloaded as part of a cost-cutting exercise, with Turkish side Besiktas said to be keen.

Fulham, though, have yet to sanction a sale and Stafylidis, who has moved to west London on a season-long loan from Bayer Leverkusen, would like to see a familiar face stick around and lead a promotion push.

He said: “Of course (I hope he stays). He’s a great guy and speaks my language.

“I think last year he had a problem with injury and hopefully he can come back better and help our team.

“For me he is a good player and I think if he works hard then he is one of the best strikers in Greece.

“I think it’s been difficult for him coming to England and I think this year he will try more and I hope he will help our team.”

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....

alf of our players have the physical presence of a 14 year old girl. I don't know why people are always shocked that they're injured.
