Manager Marco Silva has signed a new deal with Fulham that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2025-26 season.

Silva was appointed head coach in July 2021 and his existing contract would have run out at the end of the season.

The 46-year-old Portuguese guided Fulham to 10th place last season on their return to the Premier League – their first top-half finish since 2012.

The west London club sit 13th in the Premier League after nine games.

“I’m really pleased to sign a new contract as it was something we had been discussing for some time,” said Silva, who was courted by Saudi Arabian clubs in the summer.

“It’s always a good sign when both parties are happy and want to continue working together. I feel the business is not done yet, we’ve had two great seasons, and the goal is clearly there to sustain this club in the Premier League.

“It is important to feel the trust and have the support of our owners. My relationship with them has been really important in this decision. Let’s continue together on this long journey.”
