Joe Bryan has signed a new contract at Fulham until the summer of 2023.
The 26-year-old was the hero in the Championship play-off final as his two goals – one an outrageous free-kick – helped seal a 2-1 victory over Brentford at Wembley.
Fulham also have an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months.
“I’m obviously delighted to commit a couple more years to the club,” Bryan told Fulham’s website. “We’re in the Premier League now so it’s nice to be able to give myself more time to develop and prove myself as a Premier League player.
“We came together as a team last year and it was nice to be able to repay a bit of the faith that the club and supporters have shown in me during my time here, by helping the club back into this league.
“Now it’s about improvement and making the step up again, to try and become an established Premier League team.”
