More on Danny Murphy now – and the Fulham skipper says he wants to finish his career at Craven Cottage.

Both Fulham and Stoke dismissed as nonsense an internet rumour that Murphy had been the subject of interest from the Britannia Stadium and Murphy has revealed that he is on the verge of putting put to paper on a new deal that would keep him at Fulham until 2011.

It is a case of getting the paperwork done and finalising a few little details. The manager wants me and I want to spend the rest of my career here. There’s no doubting that.

The club is moving forward. We’re looking towards another productive season. I’m the captain. What more do I want? I’m just completely content.
