Thomas Eisfield has told the German press that he feels ‘in a sort of limbo’ as he waits to see what the future holds.

The 22 year-old attacking midfielder, who signed for Fulham on a free transfer from Arsenal last July, has made just seven appearances for the Cottagers and saw his first-team opportunities tail off once Kit Symons succeeded Felix Magath. He spent the second half of the season on loan at German second division side Bochum, where he made twelve appearances and scored a single goal.

Eisfeld resumed training with the German club on Monday and apparently Bochum manager Gertjan VerbeekĀ would be keen on making the transfer permanent, but both Eisfeld and the German team’s chairmanĀ Hans Peter-Villis are awaiting word from Fulham on the young playmaker’s future.
