It appears that the deal that would rid Fulham of the excessive cost to the wage-bill that Kostas Mitroglou presents, is limping along towards a conclusion.

Speculation linked Mitroglou, who failed to score a single goal for Fulham whilst with us, despite his huge transfer fee, with a move to the Turkish outfit Besikatas.

However, the Turkish side are now grumbling about the ?6 million asking price feeling that it is too high (they probably have a point but we do want some of our initial outlay back).

But, the big question to Besiktas must relate to the fact that whilst Mitroglou flopped in English football he was a relative success whilst on loan with Olympiakos last season, netting 16 times in 24 games (are we sure that`s the same bloke), therefore how much lower do they want Fulham to drop the price?

This deal will roll on and on until a price is agreed, I reckon, just to get him off the books, in the region of ?4.5 million.
