Despite all the ongoing speculation, Erik Nevland has reaffirmed his commitment to Fulham.

The Norwegian striker scored in the 3-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday and looked very lively before being forced off after suffering a dead leg in a challenge with John Terry.

Nevland has been continually linked with a return to his former club, Viking Stavanger, and reports in the Norwegian press had suggested that Roy Hodgson had met with Viking’s sporting director – the former Southampton midfielder Egil Ostenstadt – to discuss a possible transfer. Ostendstadt has remained tight-lipped about the story and Nevland says he’s happy to see out his contract at Fulham.

I have nothing new to say. I have a contract with Fulham that ends after next season. They don’t want me to leave, and I want to stay here.

Nevland has largely been used from the bench this season but is expected to play a major part in the club’s final three games should he recover from his injury.
