Aleksandar Mitrovic joined Fulham on the final day of the January transfer window.

A dramatic day saw the Newcastle striker set to join Bordeaux, only for Anderlecht to come in for him.

Then Newcastle’s number 45 was left in no man’s land when an outgoing deal didn’t happen, leaving Anderlecht to tell Mitro they couldn’t even afford his loan fee.

A last gasp deal with Fulham then saved Aleksandar Mitrovic from having to join Middlesbrough on loan, which had been the fallback option.

With it being nine months since his last league start, maybe no surprise that he is having a slow start with the Cottagers.

Coming on as a second-half sub last week in the 2-0 home win over Forest, then a 51st minute introduction off the bench at Bolton on Saturday. No goals as yet, with Fulham picking up a point in a 1-1 draw.

This puts Fulham in fifth and Mitro still waiting to really get his loan move going with only 15 games remaining.

However, next Saturday could be his first start with a tough match at home to in-form Aston Villa to look forward to.

Yet to find form on the pitch, when performing his initiation song at Fulham (watch below) it suggests that his singing might need a bit of fine tuning as well…

Let’s hope Aleksandar Mitrovic finds form on the pitch to help him in his World Cup preparations and more importantly, help he and Rafa Benitez find a positive solution in the summer when his loan stint at Fulham ends.

Rafa said he would like to see Mitro get 25 goals with Fulham, which looks a little ambitious at the moment.

    Mitro. Some fans feel they have a gift to see football as some complex game. A bit like David Prutton. They use stats and figures and all sorts of other arguments.

    But I know what I see with my own two eyes.

    I am no football expert, maybe that is an advantage.
