Ross McCormack has signed a new-four year contract at Fulham, the club have confirmed this afternoon.

The Scottish striker and the club exercised an option in the contract he signed after joining from Leeds United last summer to extend that deal by a year and the agreement ends speculation linking McCormack with a move to Norwich City or Middlesbrough. The 28 year-old forward scored nineteen goals and made eleven more in a difficult debut season at Craven Cottage, but professed himself ‘really happy’ to have committed his future to the west London club.

I’m really happy. When I signed, I had an option of a year on my contract, so the club and I have come to an agreement to extend that with a year, so I’m really happy.

The Scottish international is now contracted at Craven Cottage until 2019 and will be hoping to score his first goal of the new season in Fulham’s first home game of the new campaign against Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow afternoon. Already a firm favourite with the Fulham faithful, McCormack was voted player of the season by the fans last term.
