Fulham have confirmed Chris David and Thomas Eisfeld will see out the rest of the season at clubs in Europe.

The pair have little chance of breaking into the first team set-up after the return of Alex Kacaniklic and Ryan Tunnicliffe from their own loan deals at FC Copenhagen and Blackburn Rovers respectively.

David came from FC Twente in his native Holland in January 2013, and it’s there the 21-year-old midfielder returns after just six appearances for the Whites, despite a debut goal on the last day of last season that earned already relegated Fulham a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Eisfeld was a summer signing by deposed boss Felix Magath. But although the former Arsenal midfielder played the first five games of the season, all but one ended in defeat.

He will now get a chance to resurrect his career in his native Germany with VfL Bochum in the Bundesliga second tier.
