Fulham have confirmed that defender Moritz Volz has left the club at the end of his contract. The German, 26, who had a spell with Arsenal and Wimbledon before heading to Craven Cottage in 2004, made 146 appearances for the Cottagers. Volz scored what was the 15,000th Premier League goal in a game against Chelsea in Dec 2006, spent a spell on loan at Ipswich during the 2008/2009 campaign. As manager Roy Hodgson continues his preparations for next season, which will also include a Europa League campaign, the Dutch striker Collins John has also left after failing to break into the first team on a regular basis. Elsewhere, Danish midfielder Leon Andreasen, who joined Fulham during the 2008 January transfer window, has joined Hannover 96 on a permanent deal following a loan spell.
