Aleksandar Mitrovic has been in good form for Fulham, and he has been named the Championship Player of the Month for March.
Since joining Fulham on loan from Newcastle United on the final day of the January transfer window, Mitrovic has scored eight goals, five of them in March in his five appearances for the club.
That’s excellent form from Mitro.
In the 25 Championship games, he played for Newcastle last season he scored four goals.

The difference seems to be that Fulham are playing more to his strengths up front, whereas Rafa Benitez at Newcastle prefers a counter-attack type of play.
But it’s great for the 23-year-old he is doing well at Fulham.
This is what his manager Slavisa Jokanovic has said – via a tweet.

We’re almost certain that Rafa will still sell Aleksandar in the summer.
It would seem like Fulham would be the favorites to sign him if they can get promoted.
That would be either by finishing second in the league by pipping Cardiff City or via the playoffs.
And if Mitro has a good World Cup, which would not be a big surprise, his transfer could be well above the £14M we paid Anderlecht for him almost three years ago.
The Newcastle fans love Mitro because of his all-out effort on the field and that Newcastle was his favorite club with Alan Shearer being his idol.
But since Rafa arrived, he hasn’t had a good time of it on Tyneside, although he refuses to talk negatively about the manager.
A move in the summer would be good for the talented Serbian.
