Fulham striker Eidur Gudjohnsen expects to find out his Fulham future before the end of the season.
And the Icelandic striker reckons he has more than a decent chance of adding himself to the roster that suddenly sees the Whites with four top hitmen champing at the bit.
The former Chelsea man was given the nod over the Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson in the 3-0 win over Bolton and admits there have been clues that he will get offered a deal to keep him at Craven Cottage.
“I think there has been hints and talks about next season – but nothing formal, although I’m sure before the end of the season I’ll sit down with manager,” he said.
“I would be glad to stay if both parties can agree something. The club needs competition for places, and it was unfortunate there were injuries earlier on.
“I’m sure I would get my fair share of games if I was to stay, and you could see against Bolton that I was linking up well with Mousa (Dembéle).”
Gudjohnsen admits his career was in ruins after he was left to rot on the sidelines at Stoke only for it to get revived when Fulham boss Mark Hughes rescued him with a short-term contract in the January transfer window.
Now the 32-year-old who moved from Stamford Bridge to Barcelona in a reported £9million deal five years ago fancies his chances of seeing out his time in the Premiership with the other side in SW6.
He said: “It’s a great just to be playing again. Fulham have half-resurrected my career because it was fading away.
“I think I’m returning to form – and it’s there for everyone to see, and although I missed a couple of chances against Bolton – the goals will come.”
