Aleksandar Mitrovic has extended his contract with Fulham in a deal that will keep him at Craven Cottage until 2024.

Mitrovic scored 11 Premier League goals last season as the Whites struggled following their promotion from the Championship. They were eventually relegated following a 4-1 defeat away to Watford in April.

The Serbian striker was one of the standout performers for Fulham in an otherwise disappointing season, and admitted there were plenty of clubs interested in signing him.

Nevertheless, the 24 year-old has rejected an opportunity to play elsewhere in order to stay in SW6, where he has played brilliantly since first making the move on loan in the 2017/18 season.

As quoted by the club's official website, Mitrovic said: "I feel great. I’m really happy and I’m looking forward to playing here next season.

“There were a lot of clubs interested but in the end I decided to stay here because I’m really happy and settled at Fulham. My kids, wife, all my family are happy here. This is my home and I am really happy to sign a new deal.

"Since the first day I came here I have received a great reception from everyone in the Club and the fans. I feel motivated and every morning when I come here to work I am happy. I have found my happiness and passion here.”

Fulham co-owner Tony Khan expressed his delight at the deal, as he said: "Mitro is a world class goal-scorer at any level and an amazing talent,

"But he’s also an incredible person off the pitch, he’s a leader at this football club and a great friend to his teammates and our entire staff, and he’s such a beloved hero to our supporters."
