Fulham will have to wait until the summer to learn whether they have a chance of signing loan striker Aleksandar Mitrovic on a permanent basis according to the Chronicle Live.
The 23-year-old Serbian international forward has become an instant hit at Craven Cottage after joining the West Londoners from English Premier League club Newcastle United on loan deal last month until the end of the season.
Mitrovic has scored seven goals in just eight outings for Fulham and his superb form has been one of the contributing factors in The Whites’ rise to fourth position in the Sky Bet Championship table.
Prior to his move to Craven Cottage, the player made just seven appearances for parent club Newcastle United this term and a question mark hangs on his long term future at St James’ Park.
Mitrovic is clearly loving life with Fulham and with the West Londoners keen to hold onto the striker, it has been reported that The Whites will need to wait until the end of the season before they hear about whether the Serbian will be sold by Newcastle United.
The Magpies signed Mitrovic from Belgian club Anderlecht in a reported £13 million deal in summer 2015. The striker had scored just 17 goals for the Tyneside club before finding his goalscoring boots at Fulham.
