Steve Marlet has admitted that his future is uncertain after revealing that Fulham and Marseille have not yet entered into talks regarding the striker.

The 30-year-old has been on loan at Stade Velodrome for two years after failing to make an impact at Fulham following his £11.5 million move from Lyon in 2001.

Marlet has proved to be more of a success back in his home country with seven goals in 19 starts this year, and was rewarded for his efforts at l’OM with a call-up to Raymond Domenech’s France squad last month.

With Philippe Troussier’s future also uncertain, despite the coach indicating he would like to stay with the Ligue 1 outfit, Marlet admits that it is hard say whether he will stay at the club beyond the current campaign.

However the player insists he is confident that his unselfish displays have stood him in good stead to earn a permanent deal with l’OM.

“I am aware my situation is linked to my performances, but that doesn’t disturb me,” Marlet told L’Equipe.

“I am playing the matches considering the collective aim, not mine. I know if we have a good result I will take advantage.

“As for last year we have not yet talked with the Marseille officials, but I can understand it because there are still unknown factors so it is a little complex.

“We don’t yet know if the coach will stay, if he will take the decision to keep the players or not, it is not that easy.”
