Teenage winger Sylvester Jasper has signed a new three-year contract with Fulham.
The deal is fitting recognition for the 18 year-old’s emergence as one of the brightest prospects at Motspur Park. Jasper starred as Fulham’s under 18 side stormed to the league title, scoring nine times in eighteen appearances for Steve Wigley’s side, and played league five games for the under-23s as well.
Jasper’s meteoric rise was capped by a professional debut for Fulham as a substitute in their FA Cup defeat at Manchester City in January. The youngster also made substitute appearances for the Whites in their Championship games against Brentford and Birmingham at Craven Cottage having impressed Scott Parker with his determination, pace and dribbling ability.
The young starlet told Fulham’s official website:
“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with this great club, especially after a great season for myself personally. And the club winning promotion to the Premier League makes it even more special. My main focus now is to work hard and help the team any way I can to have a good season in the Prem.”
