London - Fulham have completed the signing of Croatia forward Mladen Petric, the English Premier League club announced on Thursday.
The 31-year-old has joined the London side on a free transfer, signing a one-year deal, from Hamburg, where his contract recently expired.
During his time with the German club, Petric played under current Fulham manager Martin Jol and now he is aiming to help his new club improve on their ninth-place league finish last season.
"I played with Hamburg against the club two years ago in the Europa League," Petric told Fulham's website.
"It was very nice to play at Craven Cottage with a fantastic crowd and I have enjoyed a good relationship with every member of the club I have met since.
"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."
