Giorgos Karagounis: Out of contract at end of season

Fulham manager Martin Jol is hoping to keep Giorgos Karagounis at the club next season.

The 36-year-old Greece international joined the Cottagers on a free transfer from Panathinaikos in September but is out of contract in the summer.

Jol told the Evening Standard: "Time is on our side, of course, because he will not go for £5m or £6m to another club.

"But, on the other hand, I do not want to see him go to other clubs. He is happy here."

Karagounis appears to have settled well in London and added: "Fulham is a great team to play for. The club have impressed me.

"To compete in the Premier League is a joy for every footballer. It is one of the toughest leagues in the world. It is better than I imagined."
