Eidur Gudjohnsen has moved to Fulham on loan from Stoke City for the remainder of the season.

The 32-year-old former Chelsea and Barcelona striker, who becomes a free agent in the summer at the end of his one-year contract with the Potters, has made just five substitute appearances since arriving at the Britannia Stadium last August.

“It has been an incredibly frustrating time for Eidur,” said the City manager Tony Pulis. “But he has been an outstanding professional and a great influence around the place in his time here.

“Unfortunately, he didn’t get the games that he needed to build up his match fitness, but this loan move presents him with a chance to do that.”
