Mladen Petric admits he is looking forward to the opportunity of playing in the Premier League after signing a one-year deal with Fulham.

The 31-year old Croatian striker yesterday completed a switch to the Southwest London club as a free agent after departing German club Hamburg and is excited about the challenge ahead.

"I like the Premier League and it has always been one of my wishes to come here," the former FC Basel, Grasshopper and Borussia Dortmund man said.

"I'm very happy to be part of what is happening at Fulham. The club is doing very well and that was why I decided to come here.

"I know the manager well and I know that he is always looking to strengthen his attacking options - and I hope that we can do even better next season."
