Baird signs new Fulham deal
Tuesday 14 September 2010
Fulham defender Chris Baird has signed a new deal running until the summer of 2013.
The Northern Ireland international, who was signed from Southampton in the summer of 2007, played a key role as Fulham fought their way to the Europa League final last season.
Baird made his first appearance under new manager Mark Hughes at the weekend when he appeared as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 win over Wolves.
Baird, 28, showed his versatility last season by filling a midfield role while Dickson Etuhu and Danny Murphy were missing through injury.
Baird began his career with Ballymena United before joining Southampton. He made his Saints debut in 2003.
