Earlier today, Fulham confirmed goalkeeper Marek Rodák will leave when his contract at the club expires at the end of this month.

The 27-year-old initially joined Fulham’s academy in 2013 and has made 93 appearances in all competitions for them.

Marco Silva’s side had the option to extend his contract for another year, but they decided not to exercise it.

Rodák could move to Saudi Arabia if a report from L’Equipe journalist Loïc Tanzi is to be believed.

He took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to state that Middle East clubs are waiting to find out their budgets for the summer window. That hasn’t stopped some from working on potential signings.

Tanzi says the stopper could move to Al-Ettifaq, and he uses this an example to indicate that a few Saudi clubs are already trying to sign players.

The move to Saudi Arabia would likely see the goalkeeper improve his salary, and enjoy regular game time next season, which he didn’t get at the Premier League side.

Rodák made five appearances for Fulham in the recently concluded season and all of them were in the cup competitions.

Fulham FC statement
Fulham’s longest serving player in terms of his arrival, Rodák joined our Academy in the 2012/13 and went on to enjoy considerable success across several teams.

In his first full season at the Club, Rodák was a member of the only Fulham Under-18s side to reach the FA Youth Cup Final, where they were narrowly defeated by Chelsea across two legs.

After securing winners medals in the league with the 18s and Dallas Cup at Under-19 level, Rodák enjoyed several impressive loan spells, including a promotion to the Championship with Rotherham United.

It was the 2019/20 campaign where Rodák established himself in the First Team setup at Craven Cottage, featuring 39 times across all competitions as the Whites won promotion via a Wembley Play-Off Final victory over Brentford.

Rodák added a second Premier League promotion to his CV two years later, starting 35 times as Marco Silva’s side won the Championship title.

He departs with 93 Fulham appearances to his name.
