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.”
