Kasami, 31, will be best known to English football fans for his spell at Fulham.

He played 56 times for the Cottagers between 2011 and 2014.

His most memorable moment by far came in a match against Crystal Palace during the 2013-14 campaign.

Palace had gone 1-0 up on the night via a goal by Adrian Mariappa.

Kasami then levelled for Fulham in spectacular fashion, controlling a long ball with his chest before striking a sensational volley into the opposite top corner.

The West Londoners went onto win the match 4-1, but would be relegated at the end of that campaign.

Kasami left upon Fulham’s demotion, joining Olympiacos.

He returned to English football during the 2016-17 season, playing on loan at Nottingham Forest.


The 12-cap international spent five years back in his native Switzerland with Sion and then Basel, before returning to Olympiacos last year.

He has now penned a one-year contract with Sampdoria and will play in Serie B, following his new team’s relegation to the second tier last term.

Fulham fans still appear to hold a place in their hearts for Kasami.

One wrote: “Should have come home son.”

While a second tweeted: “Many congratulations Pajtim!!”

Another added: “Good luck, Pajtim!”
