Ryan Babel has indicated that he will leave Fulham when his deal expires this summer
He said: ‘My agent has had some phone calls. For me, I am at the stage where I have to make the right decision. I am able, if I am lucky enough, to play in the Euros next year, if we qualify. So there are a lot of factors for me to make the right decision.
‘I still think I have two or three years ahead of me and of course if I have the opportunity to stay in the Premier League, that would be great.’
