Sascha Riether is yet to decide if he wants to remain at Fulham

The 29-year-old German has been on a season-long loan at Craven Cottage from German club Cologne - who play in the second tier of the Bundesliga.

Fulham manager Martin Jol recently indicated he would be keen to keep Riether in west London, and may trigger a clause to make the move permanent for around £1.3m.

Riether also has a say on whether he would like to remain by the Thames, having featured in 29 games for the club this season.

He told German magazine Kicker: "Nothing is decided yet. Fulham can activate a clause, and I also have to agree.

"As things stand now, I will return to Cologne in the summer. But I have to consider and talk to both clubs.

"I wanted to become a starter at Fulham, and I managed to do that. I am proud I have become a fans' favourite.

"But of course I can still do better, and that's what I am trying to do."

He added that the hardest part of playing in England was to learn the language: "It wasn't easy. At first, I got nothing of what our Scottish assistant coach (Billy McKinlay)."

Regarding the clause when the loan deal expires in May, Jol said recently: "We've got an option on him and I think we will take it. He will probably stay here."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
