Mitrovic signs new five-year deal with Fulham

Fulham have signed striker Aleksander Mitrovic to a new five-year contract, to keep him at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2024.

The Serbian international signed for the Cottagers on a loan-deal from Newcastle United in February 2018 when the club were still in the Championship. He finished the season with 12 goals and helped Fulham to secure promotion to the Premier League by winning the play-off final.

In the summer of 2018, he signed a permanent deal for an initial fee of €24.5 million (£22 million) and got 11 goals in 37 Premier League appearances last season for the London club.

Speaking to FulhamFCTV after signing the contract, 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.”

Vice-Chair of the football club Tony Khan added: “Aleksandar Mitrović has been a huge part of Fulham Football Club since he first arrived here in 2018, and helped fuel our run of 23 consecutive games unbeaten and our subsequent promotion to the Premier League.

"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.

“Likewise, he loves Fulham and our awesome supporters and playing at Craven Cottage, we’ve all made him feel that Fulham is his home.

"I've been clear that keeping Mitro in our squad was our top priority, and I’m grateful to him for his loyalty that he’s committed to our club and this promotion campaign ahead. Thank you, Mitro, we are fortunate to have you as part of this Fulham family."
