Jol to delay stopper deal decision
Zdenek Grygera's hopes of securing a new deal at Fulham have been hit by a setback in his recovery from a long-term knee injury.
The Czech Republic international defender joined the Cottagers from Juventus on a 12-month contract in summer 2011, but his season ended prematurely in November when he damaged cruciate ligaments.
Grygera has been allowed to stay at Craven Cottage in order to get back to full fitness despite his previous deal expiring on June 30.
However, having featured in several reserve-team games, Grygera has now picked up a thigh injury and boss Martin Jol will now delay his decision on whether to offer the player new terms at the club.
"Grygera has had a setback because he got injured," 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."
