David Elm has just told Swedish radio that he will be signing a contract extension to stay at Fulham beyond the summer.

This confirms the perception that Elm has done a lot better in his first year at the club and the former Kalmar striker has persuaded Roy Hodgson to tie him down to a long-term deal. The sticking point seems to be the length of the contract (likely to be two years at best for the moment).

Elm, who joined from the Swedish champions in a surprise summer deal, had impressed when he got a run in the first team earlier this year. He scored his first Fulham goal in the 3-0 win over Burnley back in February.
