Zdenek Grygera is due to return to training this week as he bids to prove his fitness to Fulham boss Martin Jol.
The Czech defender is out of contract following a long injury lay-off, but is expected to resume sessions at the club’s Motspur Park base after overcoming a thigh problem.
Jol will give Grygera the chance to get up to speed before deciding whether to offer him a new deal in SW6.
He said: “I don’t want to make decisions on him yet because it’s not easy for him.
“He had quite a bad injury, came back and got injured again. Hopefully he will be back but we have to wait and see.”
