Ex-Chelsea and Arsenal Willian has signed a new one-year contract with Fulham.
The 34-year-old joined the west Londoners last summer on a free transfer after leaving Brazilian side Corinthians and made 30 appearances in all competitions under Marco Silva last season.
He scored five goals and picked up six assists last season as Fulham finished 10th in the Premier League.
Nottingham Forest reportedly offered Willian a two-year deal, but the winger has opted to stay with Fulham.
Fulham chief Tony Khan said: “I’m thrilled that Willian will return to Fulham for at least one more season. He was a very important addition last summer, and he was a significant contributor during one of the most successful Premier League campaigns that our club has ever had.
“We’re all very excited that Willian will return to Craven Cottage as we aim for another successful season in the Premier League together. Come on Fulham.”
