Fulham head coach Marco Silva has signed a new contract until the end of the 2025-2026.
The Portuguese won promotion from the Championship in his first season at the helm and then finished 10th in the Premier League campaign.
Silva was a target for Saudi Arabian clubs in the summer.
“I’m really pleased to sign a new contract as it was something we had been discussing for some time,” said Silva.
“It’s always a good sign when both parties are happy and want to continue working together. I feel the business is not done yet, we’ve had two great seasons, and the goal is clearly there to sustain this club in the Premier League.
“It is important to feel the trust and have the support of our owners. My relationship with them has been really important in this decision. Let’s continue together on this long journey.”
Fulham chairman Shahid Khan said: “This is a wonderful day for Fulham Football Club.
“Specifically, it’s a fantastic moment for Fulham supporters, who deserve our very best efforts to invest in the present and future of their club, both within and around the game.
“When I first met Marco in 2021, I knew then he represented everything we needed and more from our next head coach.
“I am grateful that Marco believed, as I did, in what is possible here at Fulham, and now here we are several years later reaffirming our commitment to achieving something special for our fans.
“Marco and I are aligned – we have work ahead, but even more to look forward to.”
