Twenty year-old winger Alex Kacaniklic first came to these shores in 2007 when he left first club Helsinborgs to join Liverpool.

Whilst the Swede never made a first-team appearance for the Anfield club, he certainly made a positive impression and was eventually surrendered in 2010.

When former Whites boss Roy Hodgson left West London to join Liverpool he quickly returned for Paul Konchesky. As part of the deal that took Konchesky to Merseyside, Kacanilkic and Finnish forward Lauri Dalle Valle moved to Craven Cottage.

Kacaniklic impressed during his time in the youth and reserve teams at Liverpool, scoring a beautiful volley against Arsenal in the F.A Youth Cup Final of 2009.

The left-winger has also played for Sweden's U16 side.

Watford can thank former boss Ray Lewington, now on the coaching staff at Fulham, for recommending the club to Kacaniklic.

Speaking to The Official Site, Kacaniklic said:

'Ray (Lewington) at Fulham told me what I should expect there so I'll be ready for that!

'I have only heard positive things about the club, from Ray and other people I've spoken to. I'm really excited about this move because I see it as a big chance to get some first-football and experience.'

Alex will wear the number 18 jersey for the duration of his stay and is eligible to feature at Millwall tomorrow.
