Fulham transfers: Olympiakos’ Vasilis Torosidis wants to move abroad
Fulham transfers: Olympiakos midfielder Vasilis Torosidis says he wants to move abroad amid interest from the Cottagers
Vasilis Torosidis has revealed that he wants to leave Olympiakos and move abroad, with Fulham interested in the defender.
The 27-year-old is refusing to sign a new deal with the Greek champions after moving to the Athens outfit in 2007.
Martin Jol has been linked with a move for the Greece international, who is believed to be available for around £500,000.
The Fulham boss snapped up Giorgos Karagounis on a free transfer in the summer – and Torosidis is desperate for a fresh challenge in a different European league.
“I’m not going to sign a new deal,” Torosidis told the Sun. “I want to move abroad.”
Meanwhile, Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale revealed that he would consider a permanent move to Hull City if the Championship side were promoted after completing a loan switch to the KC Stadium last week.
“It’s a possibility,” he said. “I have to think about it, especially if Hull go up.
“It has been very frustrating at Fulham. There have been bits here and there but that’s not down to me; they have a goalkeeper [Mark Schwarzer] who is doing very well.”
