Scott Parker’s new Fulham contract will include a big-money bonus for beating the drop, according to the Daily Mail.

Fulham’s eagerness to extend their manager’s deal at Craven Cottage was widely revealed in the wake of their dramatic Championship play-off final win over Brentford last week. Parker, now 39, is only under contract to the west London club until next summer and is expected to be handed a significant boost to his current wages and a bonus based on securing the Whites’ survival in the top flight that could total £1m. The Mail suggests that both parties are confident that discussions over the terms of the contract, due to take place when Parker returns from a family holiday, will prove straightforward.

Parker’s backroom staff, including first team coach Matt Wells, assistant manager Stuart Gray, goalkeeping coach Rob Burch and long-serving head of sports science Ally Harris, are also in line for new deals designed to reflect the club’s recent success. With his own position secure, Parker will quickly turn his attention to strengthening Fulham’s squad ahead of their return to the top flight alongside vice chairman and director of football Tony Khan. The pair have ruled out a spending spree to compare with the club’s lavish 2019 spending but supplementing the side that took them to promotion will be vital with just four weeks until the start of the new campaign.
