Martin Jol has revealed that Fulham have offered Andy Johnson a new two-year contract.
The former England striker scored both goals as the Whites won 2-0 in Odense to gain their first group stage victory in this year’s Europa League and Jol is keen to keep hold of Johnson, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
We have offered him another two years so there is a lot of confidence in him. Sometimes it’s better to start talking in December or January. Andy is a good boy and a good worker.
He has one year left and hopefully we can change that. If not, it is in his hands. He is a team player and will give you his all. He was good for us today and Fulham has been good to him before my time here.
He has had a lot of big injuries and didn’t score a lot of goals last year, just two, maybe three. It’s a good marriage, you know?
I want Andy to be with us and stay here. I don’t think there’s a lot of difference [in the negotiations]. We have spoken a couple of times in the last couple of weeks.
