The 34-year-old Danish international had said that he intended to retire form the game when his contract with Fulham runs-out in the summer.

"I still feel I'm good enough and I'd play here for one more year if it was offered, for sure," he said.

"I feel very comfortable at the club and my family feel settled where we live, but I don't know what's happening next year and I haven't planned anything at all.

"I have to know at some stage, however, because I must take care of my family. We must plan school for my son and stuff like that. I'm thinking about what will happen next year."

"My family would like to stay here for one more year if possible," he said. "I've spoken to my wife and it's about which options you have and which you take.

"It's so difficult to plan in football because you are the hero one week and the total opposite the next. So we will see what kind of options I have in the summer.

"I'd like to play at the highest level for as long as possible, and if you have the possibility to end your career at that level you should.

"You should be honest with yourself and say either `I can't compete' or `I can still give something'.

"But I wouldn't move within England as my family have moved enough already. And I don't think I would drop a league because it's difficult to travel eight hours by bus to a game somewhere."
