Fulham have allowed young midfielder Pajtim Kasami to leave Craven Cottage on loan for the remainder of the season to join Swiss Super League club Lucerne, the Premier League club confirmed on its official website.

Kasami was the first signing of Martin Jol when he took over as Fulham manager at the start of the 2011/12 season, paying Italian Serie A side an undisclosed fee and handing the youngster a four-year contract.

The 20-year-old Kasami, who has been capped 15 times at under-21 level by Switzerland, has failed to hold down a regular starting berth at Fulham, however. He has only 11 appearances to his name for the club and only three this year, the last of which came back in mid-September when featuring against West Brom.

Kasami had been expected to depart on loan in the January transfer window with German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg declaring an interest and Pescara offering him a temporary return to Italy or the remainder of the season.

Those deals fell through, the latter due to a technical glitch, but Fulham have finally secured Kasami – who once appeared at youth level for Liverpool – the opportunity to play first-team football with Lucerne, who finished runners-up in the Swiss Super League last season but have struggled this year.
