Fulham decided not to include Stefan Johansen in the 25-man Premier League squad for this season.
Therefore, the midfielder has been restricted to two appearances in the EFL Cup and his last outing for the Cottagers came on October 1st.
Last month, the 30-year-old told Norway’s TV2 his situation at Craven Cottage isn’t ideal and “something needs to be done” about his future in the winter market.
Johansen’s agent Tore Pedersen has now confirmed to TV2 several clubs have expressed their interest in the Norway international. The representative, however, stressed his client will not be moving to a specific country, if he ends up leaving Fulham.
“He wants to play football. It has been a half year with a lot of on and off and back and forth. It will not be Norway, I can guarantee that,” Pedersen said.
The player’s current deal with the London club runs down in 2022. According to TV2’s report, Major League Soccer side New York City FC have Johansen on their radar.
The agent neither confirmed nor denied these claims, but stressed the conditions must be right for Scott Parker’s man to join a new club in January.
“We are looking at different solutions. Finding a club is no problem, but everything has to be right. There is a total package here that needs to be decided, but Fulham play ball,” he explained.
When further quizzed if he feels confident a solution could be found this month, Pedersen said: “In this game here, I’m not sure.”
