Cottagers take Gudjohnsen

Published Add your comment

Eidur Gudjohnsen has joined Fulham on loan from Stoke until the end of the season.

The Potters gave the go-ahead for the Iceland international to make the move shortly before the 11pm transfer deadline on Monday.

The 32-year-old former Chelsea and Barcelona striker then agreed personal terms with the Cottagers and passed a medical, which was organised locally so that he could complete the paperwork in time.

Gudjohnsen, who becomes a free agent in the summer at the end of his one-year contract with Stoke, has made just five substitute appearances since arriving at the Britannia Stadium last August.

"It has been an incredibly frustrating time for Eidur," City manager Tony Pulis told www.stokecityfc.com.

"But he has been an outstanding professional and a great influence around the place in his time here.

"Unfortunately, he didn't get the games that he needed to build up his match fitness, but this loan move presents him with a chance to do that."

Meanwhile, Fulham have loaned out Florida-born forward Eddie Johnson to Preston for the rest of the campaign.
