Fulham defender set for exit

Published Add your comment

Ghana defender John Pantsil feels there is "no future" for him at Fulham.

The 29-year-old, signed by former boss Roy Hodgson from West Ham in July 2008, has made just 16 appearances for Mark Hughes' men this season.

Pantsil has not featured since February 5 against Aston Villa, when he scored an own goal - as he did versus Liverpool earlier in the season - as Carlos Salcido has been preferred ahead of him.

Pantsil told "I haven't spoken about it before, but there is no future for me at Fulham. I know my agent is working hard to resolve the situation."

He added: "It has been a difficult season for me.

"I have made mistakes and I will be the first to admit, but to go from a first-team member to having to watch the game from the stands has been difficult to take."


The full-back played the full 90 minutes of Ghana's friendly against England at Wembley last month, but feels his time at Craven Cottage will soon be over when his current deal comes to an end in the summer.

Fulham have slowly climbed away from the relegation zone following a run of just two defeats in the last 11 Barclays Premier League games, and Hughes takes his men to former club and leaders Manchester United on Saturday.
