Fulham manager Scott Parker didn’t include Stefan Johansen in his plans for this season.

The midfielder was unhappy with his situation at Craven Cottage and it forced him to join Queens Park Rangers on a loan deal in January.

His temporary stay with the Championship side is only until the end of the season and QPR don’t retain any option to sign him on a permanent deal.

Last month, the Norway international opened up about feeling helpless with the Cottagers and also detailed it’s been tough for him in the first half of this season.

A move to QPR has helped the 30-year-old feature regularly and he’s started in seven league matches for them.

Johansen has less than 18 months left on his Fulham contract, but he is unsure of what’s in store for him beyond this campaign.

“You want to have security in everyday life in terms of the family situation and things like that,” he told Norway’s TV2.

“I have one year left on my contract at Fulham and we’ll have another round [of talks] this summer on what’s best for me and the club. Then we’ll see what happens. Now the focus is on playing football.”

Johansen was in a similar situation in the first half of 2019, when Fulham, who were then in the Premier League, sent him out on loan to West Bromwich Albion.

He was given opportunities at Craven Cottage after Fulham were relegated to the Championship last season, but the player lost his place again, after Parker’s side returned to the top flight.
