Jol says Riether would be happy to stay

Fulham manager Martin Jol is convinced right-back Sascha Riether will be happy to remain at Craven Cottage if the club want to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer.

Riether, 29, is at Fulham on a season-long loan from Cologne and has made 30 appearances in all competitions, missing only one Premier League game.

As part of the deal that brought the German to London, Fulham have first option to retain his services – an option Jol is very likely to take up.

He told press agency Deutsche Pressagentur: "Sasch is a fans' favourite. He is the right back in my starting XI. He runs, he works and he has a good view of situations. I am glad to have him at this club.

"We possess an option to buy him. If we are to exercise it, he will have to remain at our club.

"But, if he is not happy, we would have to talk then. I really don't think that this is the case with him. I think he feels fine being a first-team regular with us."

Riether missed Fulham's 0-0 draw at Norwich earlier this month through illness, but returned to the starting line-up for the 1-0 win over Stoke on Saturday.
