Fulham manager Martin Jol will sit down for talks with Csaba Somogyi to discuss the Hungarian keeper's future at the club.

Somogyi signed for the Cottagers in 2011 following a successful trial, but has yet to make a first team appearance.

The 28-year-old's contract at Craven Cottage is set to expire this summer and Jol is yet to decide whether or not to offer him a new deal.

Speaking to the Fulham Chronicle, Jol said: "He's another player we have to make a decision on."

With veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer refusing to relinquish his grip on the number one shirt, and second choice David Stockdale spending much of the season on loan at Hull City, Somogyi had been competing for a place on the Craven Cottage bench.

However, Neil Etheridge has been Jol's choice as back-up to Schwarzer, forcing Somogyi to spend time on loan at Dartford.

Jol was pleased with Somogyi's attitude and praised his performances at the Blue Square Premier club.

He added: "He's never played for the first team but was a great guy to have here.

"He's a good keeper, went on loan and was man of the match four times in eight games, although it was a lower level. We have to sit down with him and tell him what we'll do."

Somogyi's future may depend on whether Stockdale remains with the Cottagers next season, having already been priced out of a move to newly promoted Hull.
