Fulham striker leaves on loan

Fulham striker Corey Gameiro has joined Wellington Phoenix on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old shot to prominence at the under-19 AFC championship, scoring all six of Australia's goals at the tournament to help them qualify for the 2013 FIFA under-20 World Cup.

He has never played a senior match for Fulham, but made eight appearances for Dutch club FC Eindhoven on a recent loan spell.

"It is important to establish relationships with clubs around the world and it is exciting that we are now forming one with an English Premier League side," Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert said.

"Having players coming this way is good for the future of the club."

Gameiro should be available to make his debut next week against the Brisbane Roar.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
