Fulham have announced they have signed William Kvist on loan for the remainder of the season from Stuttgart. Kvist is a Danish international who plays as a defensive midfielder.
Central midfield is a problem for Fulham, they have been heavily reliant on Scott Parker and Steve Sidwell - both over 30s and they have as back up Derek Boateng (only started two matches) and Karagounis who is 36 and long past it.
At 28, Kvist will bring youthful exuberance to a team that often looks leggy.
As for Adel Taarabt, his days on loan at Fulham are seemingly coming to an end. AC Milan have registered their interest and he has gone to Italy to undergo a medical.
Given Taarabt has only started 7 of Fulham's 23 Premier League matches, he is not in favour and a move to a more illustrious side like Milan may do him a world of good, inferred from his glowing reference to the club: "
I am honoured to be able to play in the best club in the world. I have spoken to [AC Milan coach Clarence] Seedorf and we are both really happy."
It was this transfer that kept Taarabt out of the side in their defeat against Swansea as manager Rene Meulensteen remarked: "We thought it would be a wise decision to not include him".
With Fulham set to sign Olympiacos striker Mitroglu, as well as Manchester United youngsters Larnell Cole and Ryan Tunnicliffe, Fulham certainly aren't wasting time as they look to recruit reinforcements to survive to drop-zone.
