Fulham keeper David Stockdale may have to go out on loan again - if he is axed for fit-again Mark Schwarzer at Manchester City on Saturday.
Stockdale has ambitions of making England's Euro 2012 squad and has pressed his claims with a ten-game run while Schwarzer has been out injured.
But the 39-year-old Australian shot-stopper is available again and Fulham boss Martin Jol has a decision to make ahead of the trip to Eastlands.
Jol is set to make a late choice between the two goalkeepers.
And if Schwarzer gets the nod, the manager admits the 26-year-old former Darlington man may be forced to look for games elsewhere.
"If Mark plays then I will have to sit down with David," said Jol.
"He told me at the start of the season he needed to play and I think he was right."
