Midfielder Josh Onomah has extended his contract with Fulham until the summer of 2023, the club have confirmed this afternoon.

The former Tottenham midfielder was one of Fulham’s most consistent performers following the coronavirus lockdown and scored a sensational individual goal at Cardiff City in the play-off semi-final first leg that set up Fulham’s progress. Onomah has blossomed under the management of Scott Parker and told Fulham’s official website that he was delighted to extend his stay at Craven Cottage:

I’m delighted. It’s always been my dream to play in the Prem[ier League] properly, and I feel like I have the chance to do that here at Fulham. Thankfully, I’ve been offered a new contract which is amazing, especially after the season we had. It shows the faith and trust that the club has in me, and that’s what you need as a player. From the first minute I walked in, I felt the love from the players, staff, fans, everyone involved with Fulham Football Club. I’m just going to keep going – this is just the start.

Onomah’s new deal includes an option for Fulham to extend his contract by another year.
