Kostas Mitroglou set for permanent Benfica stay

Benfica chiefs have decided to turn Kostas Mitroglou’s loan move into permanent deal, according to A Bola.

The Greek striker joined the Eagles on loan from Fulham in the summer transfer window and he quickly managed to prove his worth at Estadio da Luz.

Mitroglou netted a total of 14 times in 24 league appearances, scoring the winner in the derby game against Sporting CP at the weekend that saw the Eagles leapfrog their bitter rivals in the standings.

And having also proved to be a real team player, Benfica have decided to exercise the buy-out clause in his contract and ensure the striker remains at the club for as long as possible.

A €7 million purchase clause can be activated at any time between 1 May and 31 May, and the amount will be paid in three instalments.

After kick-starting his career during the loan spell with Olympiakos, Mitroglou continued the rich vein of form in Portugal, establishing an excellent attacking partnership with Jonas.

I like the way Fulham try to blame Mitroglou for their downfall. Mitroglou only played for them 3 times and came to them with an injury close to the end of the season. Mitroglou already proved Fulham tossers that they were not in his league with his performances at Olympiacos and Benfica. Fulham on the other hand are where they should be.
