London: Veteran Greece midfielder Giorgos Karagounis has signed a one-year contract extension at Fulham, the west London club said on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old, Greece's record capped international, joined a year ago from Panathinaikos on a free transfer and helped the Cottagers to a 12th-placed Premier League finish.
He played 28 times for Martin Jol's side last term but was initially released at the end of that campaign.
Yet despite being linked with a return to Panathinaikos or a move to Australians Melbourne Victory, he has now penned a new one-year deal with Fulham.
With a record 125 caps for his country, Karagounis helped them to Euro 2004 glory, scoring their opening goal of the tournament in a shock victory over hosts Portugal.
During his career he has also turned out for Inter Milan and Benfica.
