Fulham Winger Willian has re-signed for Fulham after verbally agreeing a new one-year deal at Craven Cottage.

Fulham manager Marco Silva is understood to have been crucial in Willian's decision to stay after allowing him to excel upon his return to the Premier League last season.

Willian notched five goals and six assists in 27 league games as Fulham secured a top-half finish.

The Brazilian is now expected to join the squad on their pre-season tour of the United States, where they will face Brentford, Aston Villa and Chelsea over a two-week period.

Fulham FC statement Geoff Pruce
The Club is delighted to confirm that Willian has agreed a new deal that sees him return to Fulham.

Following his excellent maiden campaign at Craven Cottage, the winger has now signed a contract until 2024, with a Club option to extend by a further 12 months.

Fresh from extending his stay in SW6, Willian told FFCtv: “I’m completely happy. Happy to sign one more year with Fulham.

“Happy to continue the work that I did last season with all my teammates and the whole Club. I think it’s a club that can do even better this season, so I’m happy to continue this amazing adventure.”

Tony Khan added: “I'm thrilled that Willian will return to Fulham for at least one more season!

“He was a very important addition last summer and was a significant contributor during one of the most successful Premier League campaigns our club has ever had.

“We're all very excited that he'll return to Craven Cottage as we aim for another successful season in the Premier League together! Come on Fulham!”

Willian first arrived at Fulham on the final day of last summer’s transfer window, making his debut as a substitute away to Tottenham Hotspur two days later.

The first of many assists arrived in our next match – a 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest – before opening his account for the Club with what proved to be the winner when we defeated Leeds United by the same scoreline the following month.

The 70-cap Brazil international ended the campaign with five goals – one of which won the Premier League’s Goal of the Month, as well as the Club’s Goal of the Season award – and six assists, in 27 top-flight starts.

Willian’s consistent form put him in strong contention to win Player of the Season, eventually finishing fourth in the voting.
