I emailed a professor about possible openings for graduate studies in a certain research group and he answered me like this:

Your background looks great. Unfortunately, I recently recruited a graduate student. I have been working on grant proposals. If they get funded, I will have money to support more students. I will let you know, if plan changes.

How should i answer this email?

Is it polite to wish him luck? or should I send a simple thank you for reading my resume? or combining both and also saying that I “look forward to hearing from you” or something in that matter? It’s really important for me to make a good impression.

(I am not a native speaker by the way)
