Pajtim Kasami departs Fulham and joins Olympiakos

The 22-year-old Swiss midfielder has joined Greek champions Olympiakos after a three-year-spell at Craven Cottage.

Pajtim Kasami's time at Fulham has come to an end and no doubt the lasting memory of him will be the spectacular goal he scored last season against Crystal Palace.

Brought to the club from Palermo by Martin Jol, Kasami joined on a four-year-deal but hasn't had the chance to complete those four years, as following the club's relegation he has moved abroad to join Greek giants Olympiakos.

Kasami who failed to make the Switzerland squad for the World Cup said he was looking forward to participating in the Champions League and winning plenty of titles. Speaking to the official club website he said "It is always nice to be playing against great clubs.It is particularly important for Olympiakos to be participating in such a prestigious competition. It is a really important experience for any footballer to be playing against such clubs."

Kasami only made 38 league appearances in his three-year spell in London with the majority of those coming last season. The midfielder had a great start to the 2013-2014 campaign and found himself being linked with a transfer to Juventus at one point.

However his form tailed off slightly, although he has still managed to gain a good move. Fulham fans will be disappointed to see him leave and they never quite saw him reach his potential at the club, and would have made an impact in the Championship this season.
