Fulham goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has told reporters that he is currently uncertain as to where his future lies following Fulham’s recent relegation, according to Sky Sports.

The Dutch international goalkeeper recently experienced some World Cup heartache having been overlooked by Holland manager Louis Van Gaal in the nation’s World Cup squad.

He joined the club at the start of this past season from Roma for around £5 million and he could be set to leave for a move abroad just 12 months into his four-year deal.

He was brought in to add vital experience and ability to a squad hoping to achieve at least a mid-table finish.

However, poor form on his behalf and managerial chaos at the club plummeted them into the Championship.

He told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, “On the 25th I report back to Fulham because I am still under contract there for three years. 

“And then we’ll see. My agent is working hard to find a satisfactory solution for everyone.”

He was later asked to comment on his World Cup heartache, “I think you always have to blame yourself first. If I had played at the high level I did in 2010 there would be no reason for the coach to overlook me.

“I came to Fulham to keep the club in the Premier League and to fight to get myself in the World Cup squad. I failed on both counts.”
