Fulham Football Club statement
Stephen Humphrys has signed a new Fulham contract, before joining Shrewsbury Town on loan until the end of the season.

The striker’s new deal ties him to the Club until the summer of 2019, with an option to extend by a further year.

Humphrys, 19, joined the Whites from Bury in 2013, and after working his way through the ranks made his First Team debut as a substitute in December’s 2-2 draw with Derby County at Craven Cottage.

He now joins fellow Academy graduate Jack Grimmer at Shrewsbury, and could make his debut for the Sky Bet League One side in Saturday’s away fixture at Gillingham.

"I’m buzzing," Humphrys told fulhamfc.com. "It’s a big achievement for me, and my family as well. I’ve come a long way since I first came down to Fulham at 15-years-old, and it’s where I see my future as the Club’s definitely going places.

"Making my debut was a very proud moment. It’s something that I’ve worked towards for a long time. My mum and dad were watching in the stands, so it was a big day for me.

"I’ve been with Shrewsbury for the last few days now training. The club has been really welcoming, and hopefully I can get some goals and help them get out of the sticky spell they’re having at the minute.

"It will be good to get some League One experience, some proper men’s football, and then hopefully I’ll be ready to come back and score some goals for Fulham."
