Fulham boss Felix Magath has put all contract talks on hold until the end of the season.

John Arne Riise, Steve Sidwell and Damien Duff are among the players whose deals are up in the summer.

But Magath insists any new contracts will have to wait until the Cottagers’ fate is decided one way or the other.

He said: “At the moment I don’t care about the contract situation because we are fighting against relegation.

“It’s different whether you play in the Premier League or the Championship. It’s not the time to talk about contracts.”

Fulham are bottom of the table, four points adrift of safety with just seven games remaining. They host Everton on Saturday.
