Today’s candidate for most laughably wide of the mark Fulham story goes to the fine people at The Sun, that wonderful bastion of British journalism.

They seem to think we’re preparing to offer Danny Murphy a new contract to keep him at Fulham.

Roy Hodgson has launched his bid to keep skipper Danny Murphy at Fulham.

The former Spurs and Liverpool midfielder’s contract is up in the summer. 

Boss Hodgson wants to avoid losing another established star after selling Jimmy Bullard to Hull last month and has persuaded his board to open talks with Murphy, 31, over a new deal.

Of course, they could have just got the work experience kid to check the Fulham website. From February 2nd:

Fulham captain Danny Murphy has signed a contract extension with the Club which will see the player remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2010.

The former England international has made 25 appearances for the Whites this season scoring five goals from midfield. Murphy joined Fulham during the summer of 2007 and scored the winning goal at Fratton Park at the end of last season to secure the Club’s top flight future.

During the summer of 2008 Murphy was confirmed as Roy Hodgson’s official captain for the 2008/09 campaign.
