Zdenek Grygera damaged cruciate ligaments in November but though his contact subsequently expired, he continued to train with Fulham in a bid to earn fresh terms. The Czech defender has now suffered an injury setback to throw his Fulham future further into doubt.
"Grygera has had a setback because he got injured," boss Martin Jol told the Fulham Chronicle. "He looked ever so well, played in the reserves and kept them together and they had better results than before.
"He has a thigh problem so we have to wait and see because we wanted to make a decision on him in the next week and now there's a little step back again."
