Joe Bryan has signed a new three-year deal with Fulham, the club have confirmed this afternoon.

The former Bristol City left back, who fired the Whites back into the Premier League with a memorable brace in the Championship play-off final against Brentford last month, had been a transfer target for a number of top flight clubs after Fulham brought in Antonee Robinson from Wigan Athletic earlier this summer. But Scott Parker made it clear that he wanted Bryan to stay and the 26 year-old was also keen to cement his future at Craven Cottage.

Bryan will remain with Fulham until at least 2023, with the Whites holding an option to extend this deal by a further year. He told the club’s official website:

I’m obviously delighted to commit a couple more years to the club. We’re in the Premier League now so it’s nice to be able to give myself more time to develop and prove myself as a Premier League player. We came together as a team last year and it was nice to be able to repay a bit of the faith that the club and supporters have shown in me during my time here, by helping the club back into this league. Now it’s about improvement and making the step up again, to try and become an established Premier League team.
