Fulham boss hints of Pantsil departure

John Pantsil and Zoltan Gera could leave Fulham in the summer according to the club’s manager Mark Hughes.

Defender Pantsil, 29, has made only 16 appearances this season and midfielder Gera, 31, has often been on the bench.

“John is out of contract in the summer and I said we will look at the situation at the end of the season,” Hughes said.

“I’d like Zoltan to remain here, but he’d like to play more regularly. He may feel he needs to move elsewhere.”

Ghana full-back Pantsil, who was signed by former manager Roy Hodgson from West Ham in July 2008, has not featured since playing against Aston Villa on 5 February.

Hungary captain Gera was influential in helping Fulham reach the final of the Europa League last season, but this campaign has only started 10 of the 24 Premier League games in which he has appeared.

He also recently revealed that Fulham denied him a loan move in January.

“I asked the manager to loan me because I would like to play, but they didn’t let me go,” Gera told the Daily Mirror in March.

“I will be in a better position in the summer. I will play, if not for Fulham, then for someone else.”
