Fulham have confirmed that Aleksandar Mitrović has signed a new five-year deal to remain at Craven Cottage.
Defenders beware. ☠️
Mitro's here to stay! 🔥#FFC

The striker has spent the past four-and-a-half years with the Cottagers but there had been speculation that he could depart the club this summer following relegation to the Championship.
However, he has been an important figure under new boss Marco Silva, scoring three goals in four league games and he seems happy in the team after a tough time last season under Scott Parker.
And, that was reflected with the news that he’s agreed a new long-term contract with Fulham, which was announced this morning.
Given his quality, and his record in the Championship, it’s no surprise to see this news went down very well with the Fulham support, who are delighted to see the Serbian extend his stay in the capital.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the update from Twitter…
It’s almost like there was some kind of change at the club over the last few months that made Mitro happy. Can’t quite put my finger on it…

All of the reports early this summer were that Mitro might want to leave. WHOOPS!
This is huge news for Fulham now and into the future. #FFC
