New Fulham deal for Damien Duff
Friday 22 February 2013
Fulham midfielder Damien Duff has signed a one-year contract extension, the club have confirmed.
Duff, who will turn 34 next month, has agreed to extend his stay at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2014.
The veteran's signature comes as welcome news for Fulham, who have 11 players who are due to come out of contract at the end of the season.
Duff has played an important role this term, scoring three goals in 22 league appearances to earn his new deal.
"I've loved my time at Fulham since I joined the club more than three years ago, so I'm really happy that I am going to stay here for a further year," Duff told the club's official website.
"With 12 matches remaining this season, a top-10 finish is still possible and would represent another good season for the club as we aim to play in the Barclays Premier League for a 13th consecutive campaign.
"I will always give 100 per cent for the chairman and the club, and I look forward to another season playing at Craven Cottage, which really is a special ground."
Fulham have tied down Duff amid some concern they could lose a number of players in the summer.
Veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer could, however, soon join him in staying at the club after revealing earlier this month that he has begun talks over a new deal.
Boss Martin Jol has previously also stated his desire to pin down on-loan defender Sascha Riether to a permanent deal.
