Greece striker Kostas Mitroglou signs for Fulham from Olympiakos

Fulham have moved to replace Dimitar Berbatov by completing the signing of the Greece striker Kostas Mitroglou.

Berbatov has been allowed to travel to Monaco for a medical ahead of a potential loan move to the Ligue 1 side.

If Berbatov passes, he will sign on loan until the end of the season when his contract with the Cottagers expires.

Fulham have replaced him with Mitroglou, who has moved to Fulham from Olympiakos for an undisclosed fee

West Ham were interested in the player but the 25-year-old has opted to move to Craven Cottage instead. He has signed a four-year contract with the west London club.

The striker began his career in Germany, but moved to Olympiakos in 2007. He has enjoyed a fine season so far, scoring 14 league goals in the Greek Super League. In total he scored 62 goals in 148 appearances for Olympiakos.

Fulham have also signed the midfielder Lewis Holtby joined on loan from White Hart Lane.

"Lewis will stay in London and has joined Fulham on loan until the end of the season," Holtby's agent Marcus Noack said. "Fulham has put much effort into Lewis. "It is a very well-run club with an excellent manager, René Meulensteen. The system and philosophy how Fulham plays fits well with Lewis.
