Fulham midfielder Franck Zambo Anguissa has admitted he doesn’t know if his loan spell at Napoli will be turned into a permanent one.

The midfielder joined the Italian side on loan at the end of the summer transfer window, having elected to avoid a season in the Championship with the Cottagers.

He’s quickly established himself as a key player for Luciano Spalletti’s side, with a series of impressive performances earning him rave reviews in Italy.

Napoli have an option to turn his loan move into a permanent deal if they wish, having negotiated to include one with Fulham during talks for his loan.

There have been suggestions they could take up that option come the January transfer window, although that has now been roundly rubbished by the club, who see no sense in spending money early on a deal.

And it seems the Fulham midfielder is likewise not expecting an imminent move, suggesting he will have to earn a permanent transfer first.

“Naples is a city that lives for football, and I am happy to have made this choice; there are exceptional fans,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss, relayed by Calcio News 24.

“At the moment, I’m not thinking about the contract; I’m interested in playing.

“Time will tell if I deserve to be redeemed. I’m very happy to be here in Naples, we’ll see what happens, but right now, I’m thinking about the pitch and giving my best every time I play.”
