The former Borussia Dortmund striker was well known on these shores for a goal he scored for his country against England back in 2008 - that denied England a European Championships place.

And things started well for the player.

Petric bagged two goals and provided an assist in a 5-0 win against Norwich City - it was a sensational performance.

But things soon dipped for the player. In the end he played just the one season at the club - scoring five goals during his disjointed time in West London.

He was released at the end of that campaign - and went on to have an even more despairing spell in London at West Ham United - before moving to Greek side Panathinaikos in January this year.
