John Arne Riise would like to leave Fulham in January, but remains undecided when it comes to where a move will take him.

With his contract at Craven Cottage running down, the Norwegian full-back finds himself on the fringes of the first-team fold.

No extension will be put to him before the end of the season, with Martin Jol looking to move forward with different options.

Were Riise to stick around on the banks of the Thames, he would likely see little competitive action.

For that reason, he hopes he will be granted an exit when the winter transfer window opens.

A return to his homeland, possibly at Lillestrom where his brother Bjorn Helge is on the books, has been mooted, but Riise is yet to make a definitive call on what his future will hold.

The 33-year-old defender told TV2 Sporten: "I have lived abroad for almost half of my life.

"The time might be right to move home in the New Year. It would be cool to end my career together with my brother in Lillestrom.

"But I haven't made a final decision about what I will do yet. In any case, I feel as though I can play for another four or five years."
