Fulham captain Tom Cairney signs new contract

Fulham captain Tom Cairney has signed a new contract until the summer of 2025.

The midfielder, who turns 32 later this month, has 81 goal involvements in 304 appearances for the Whites.

Cairney will make it a decade with Fulham after joining from Blackburn Rovers in 2015.

He told the club’s official website: “It means everything to me to extend my contract. Ten years is a hell of a long time in football, a very rare thing.

“I said from quite early on that Fulham feels like home – a lot of players say that and then move on, but I feel like it’s obvious that I meant it as I’ll still be here 10 years later.

“I just want to thank everyone for the support over the years – the Fulham fans have been incredible with me, and I’ll just look to keep repaying them.”

Fulham director of football Tony Khan added: “I don’t think that the importance of Tom Cairney joining Fulham in 2015 can be underestimated in terms of our recent history. He has been a great signing for the club whose contribution over the years has led to so many memorable successes on the pitch.

“TC’s new contract will also take him into a special group of players that have reached a decade with Fulham, and I’m delighted for him and his family.

“He’s a fantastic person who I have much admiration for, and it is timely that this announcement comes just two days after our victory over Arsenal in which Tom was named Player of the Match live on Sky TV.”
