Tim Ream and Neeskens Kebano have been rewarded for their superb form during Fulham’s promotion campaign with contract extensions, according to the Athletic’s Peter Rutzler.
Ream had been tipped to return to the United States this summer with his contract running down but the 34 year-old centre back, who began the campaign deputising for the injured Tom Cairney as captain, was an ever-present through Fulham’s Championship winning season, starting all 46 league fixtures. The St. Louis native is a valued member of the dressing room and will remain in SW6 for a further season, although the Whites are prioritising the recruitment of at least two further centre halves.
Congolese international Kebano has been transformed by a combination of Marco Silva and Luis Boa Morte – producing comfortably his most consistent form in five and half years at Craven Cottage. The tricky winger scored nine goals and added six assists in 40 Championship appearances and will remain as part of Silva’s first-team squad next season.
