Monaco have confirmed they will not be taking up the option to sign goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg from Fulham.

The 32-year-old Netherlands international spent last season on loan at the French Ligue 1 club, but made just four appearances. He was signed for Fulham by former Whites boss Martin Jol from Roma in the summer of 2013.

Stekelenburg, who subsequently failed to secure a place in the Dutch squad for the 2014 World Cup, will now return to Fulham where he has two years left on his contract.
