Grygera, 32, is currently out of contract after his deal expired at Craven Cottage but boss Martin Jol is willing to give the defender a chance to prove his fitness.

The Czech Republic international damaged his anterior cruciate ligament just five games into his Fulham career and has not played since, but after almost 12 months out he hopes to earn a new deal with the London club.

With 65 international caps and the likes of Juventus and Ajax as former employers, he boasts a wealth of experience and his return to training is a welcome boost for Cottagers manager Jol.

"I don't want to make decisions on him yet because it's not easy for him," Jol told the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle.

"He had quite a bad injury, came back and got injured again. Hopefully he will be back but we have to wait and see."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
