Eisfeld off to Bochum

Fulham midfielder Thomas Eisfeld is in the process of completing a move from Fulham to Bochum, ending a difficult 12 months at Craven Cottage.

The German joined the Whites last summer from Arsenal, where he made just two appearances in the League Cup.

Felix Magath brought the 22-year-old to west London last summer but Eisfeld only made seven league appearances for the Whites.

He joined Bochum in February 2015 on a month’s loan and he will be returning to Germany again this summer.

Kit Symons confirmed: “Thomas will be joining Bochum where he was on loan last year. I’m pleased for him. He had a decent pre-season with us but I think he needed that fresh start.”

He now returns to Bochum, whose squad also includes ex-Fulham defender Tim Hoogland.

Eisfeld ‘in limbo’ at Bochum

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.
