Last week in a couple of articles, we discussed the future of our expensive Greek striker, Kostas Mitroglou.

After learning that the player had been snatched from under the noses of Sporting Lisbon by Benfica, we weren`t quite sure what kind of deal had been struck between ourselves and the Lions of Lisbon.

As it turned out it was a loan deal with Fulham still being his parent club.

But, in the Sunday papers, two lines almost hidden at the bottom of the page have provided us with the perfect update.

It transpires that Benfica have an option to sign the player, who never hit the net for Fulham, for a fee of £4 million next summer, if his loan spell is a success.

Now whilst that fee would represent a significant loss for Fulham, on the deal that brought him to Craven Cottage, I`m tempted to ask just how many goals a decent loan spell constitutes so we can finally bid goodbye to an expensive mistake!

Or is that being churlish?

Your views on Mitroglou and his exploits would be most welcome.
