Eidur Gudjohnsen has hinted he will look to extend his stay at Fulham after describing the club as a "breath of fresh air".

Gudjohnsen, 32, was rescued from a torrid spell at Stoke on the final day of the transfer window, signing a deal to the end of the season.

He has yet to make an impression on Mark Hughes' first team and will be a free agent in the summer, but the Iceland striker feels he has plenty to offer the Cottagers.

"I had been having a difficult time at Stoke," Gudjohnsen said. "But this club has been a breath of fresh air for me.

I know it's not a permanent deal but I'm here to show what I can do. Who knows what will happen in the summer? I'm physically fit, injury free and hungry to do well. I've still got a lot to give."

Gudjohnsen's career has taken a dramatic downturn since he left Barcelona in 2009, having just won the Champions League with the Catalans, who he joined from Chelsea in 2006.

Ill-fated loan spells at Monaco, Tottenham and Stoke followed, but Gudjohsen has a proven Premier League pedigree having netted 73 goals in 255 English top-flight games for Bolton and Chelsea.
