Fulham have offered Willian a one-year contract extension, according to the Athletic this afternoon.

The veteran Brazilian winger had a sensational first season at Craven Cottage after cancelling his Corinthians contract to return to the Premier League last September. Willian, who had previously played for Chelsea and Arsenal, scored five goals and added six assists in thirty appearances for the Whites – quickly becoming an automatic selection in Marco Silva’s starting line-up.

The 34 year-old’s short-term deal expires at the end of the month but both the club and the former Brazilian international are keen for him to remain at Fulham as they look to built on finishing tenth on their return to the top flight. Willian is currently on holiday with his family, who are happy in London, and is expected to put pen to paper upon his return to the English capital. The deal includes a mutual option to trigger a further twelve-month extension.
