Giorgos Karagounis is excited by Fulham’s summer additions to their midfield.

Martin Jol has brought in Ghanaian midfielder Derek Boateng and Moroccan playmaker Adel Taarabt this off-season and Greek veteran Karagounis has been buoyed by the arrivals.

"There are a lot of good midfielders at this club with great quality, which is good for the team and provides healthy competition," he told the club's official website.

"This can only be good for the players and the team as a whole in order to progress and for the level to remain high.”

Karagounis added that he was planning to give as much advice as he could to some of the Cottagers promising youngsters.

"If the younger players look upon me as a good role model then I'm only too pleased to be available to help them if they have any questions,” he added.

"It gives me a lot of pleasure to help them because I can see a lot of quality among the younger players at Fulham.”
