Kerim Frei has been recalled by Fulham from his loan at Cardiff City.

The 19-year-old winger made just three appearances during his short spell with the Bluebirds, with two of those coming off the bench.

He was supposed to remain with Malky Mackay’s side until December 2, but injuries to Kieran Richardson, Bryan Ruiz and Alex Kacaniklic mean Turkish international Frei is required back at Craven Cottage as cover.

Cottagers’ boss Martin Jol said: “Frei is back from Cardiff. He can’t join us for the next match [at Stoke] but he will probably be involved against Chelsea.”
