New one-year deal for Duff

by Michelle Fortune , 22 February 2013

Damien Duff has signed a one-year contract extension with Fulham, the Premier League club have confirmed.

Duff has been at Craven Cottage since 2009 following his move from Newcastle and he has become a key figure for the Cottagers since.

His contract had been due to expire at the end of this season but the club were eager to tie him down to a new deal after another impressive season.

"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 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."

Duff, who will turn 34 next month, is one of 11 players whose contracts run out at the end of season.
