Damien Duff has revealed his delight at agreeing a contract extension with Fulham that will see him stay at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2014.
The former Irish international, who moved back into the Premier League after joining Fulham from Newcastle in August 2009, has signed a one-year contract extension after enjoying an impressive campaign under Martin Jol. The 33 year-old, who had to fight for his first-team place under the new manager, has scored three goals and made eight more this season and is ready to try and help Fulham to finish in the top ten.
Duff, who could make his hundredth Premier League appearance for Fulham against Stoke City tomorrow afternoon, told of his delight at extending his stay at the Cottage:
I’ve loved my time at Fulham since joining the club more than three years ago, so I’m really happy that I’m going to stay here for a further year. With twelve games remaining this season, a top ten finish is still possible and would represent another good season for the club as we aim to play in the Barclays Premier League for a 13th consecutive campaign.
I will always give 100 per cent for the chairman and the club, and I look forward to another season playing at Craven Cottage, which really is a special ground.
