Fulham have announced that Tim Ream, Stefan Johansen and Denis Odoi have extended their stays at Craven Cottage this season.
The club have taken up the option of extending Odoi and Ream’s contract, which was previously set to expire in 2021.
Whilst Johansen’s deal at Craven Cottage was set to expire at the end of the season, but he has signed a new deal to keep him at Fulham until 2022.
In an interview with the club’s official website, Tony Khan was pleased to secure Johansen’s future with the club, as they look to win an immediate promotion back into the Premier League.
“Stefan Johansen has made significant contributions at Fulham since he joined us three years ago. He was a vital presence in our midfield in our promotion to the Premier League.
“He’s proven that he’ll fight for this club, and I’m glad Stefan is staying for the fight ahead of us.”
Khan also issued his thoughts on the news that Odoi and Ream had signed new deals, and is hoping that they can play their part for Scott Parker’s side this season.
“Denis is a versatile and experienced defender, and he provides an intelligent and thoughtful presence within the squad, and I’m glad he’ll continue to be a leader for the club.
“Tim Ream was Fulham’s Player of the Year two seasons ago in our promotion campaign. He loves this club, and he’s a leader for us on and off the pitch.
“The experience and resolve that Tim brings to our defence will be important to the club this season as we’re fighting to get back to the Premier League.”
The trio will be hoping that they can play their part in Fulham’s next game against Nottingham Forest, where they’ll be expected to pick up another three points to aid their promotion bid.
It’s good to see them securing their futures at the club.
They’re all going to play a key role for Fulham in their promotion bid this season, and they’re the sort of players that Scott Parker should be looking to build his team around.
They know the club well and will certainly fancy their chances of making a swift return back into the top-flight.
