John Arne Riise hints at Fulham exit in January

The former Liverpool left-back is tempted by the idea of joining brother Bjorn Helge at Norwegian club Lillestrom after falling out of first-team favour at Craven Cottage
Fulham defender John Arne Riise has suggested that his second spell in England is likely come to an end in January.

The former Liverpool man has hinted that he would like to return to his native Norway, after only featuring twice in the Premier League this season.

Bjorn Helge Riise, the left-back's brother, moved from the Cottagers to Lillestrom in July 2012 and the 33-year-old is tempted by the idea of following him there in January.

"I have lived abroad for almost half my life," Riise told TV2. "The time may be ripe to move home in the New Year.

"It would be fun to end my career in Lillestrom with my brother but I have not taken any decision on what to do yet. I feel at least I can play in four or five years."

The left-back has fallen out of first-team favour, with Martin Jol preferring Kieran Richardson to the Norway international of late.

Riise has played 81 times for Fulham since moving from Roma in 2011, having initially made his name in England through over 350 appearances for Liverpool.
