Fulham Skipper Tom Cairney Gets Contract Extension To 2025

Cairney has been at the club since 2015 when he joined from Blackburn Rovers.

The 32-year-old has appeared 305 times for Fulham, scoring 45 goals and registering 36 assists.

His previous contract was due to expire at the end of this season.

“It means everything to me to extend my contract. 10 years is a hell of a long time in football, a very rare thing,” Cairney told the official club website.

“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 owner Tony Khan said: “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.”

Fulham lie 13th on the Premier League table.
