Fulham and USA defender Tim Ream has signed a new Fulham contract through 2025, adding one more year onto a deal that was set to expire at the end of the current season.

Ream, 36, has been a mainstay with the Cottagers over the past several seasons. The center back had a standout 2022/23 season as Fulham finished in 10th place, and started all but one of the club’s games this season before a recent calf injury.

Fulham FC statement

The Club is delighted to announce that Tim Ream has extended his contract.

The new deal will see him remain a Fulham player until the summer of 2025, by which point he would have been at the Club for a decade.

Speaking to FFCtv, Tim said: “It’s nice to get this done. To be somewhere for as long as I have, it takes a lot of hard work.

“To be able to say you are looking at being at a place like this for ten years is not something that happens very often these days.

“To be someone who has that opportunity is a great feeling.

“It fills me with pride to continue to adapt, to continue this rollercoaster that is football.”

In his ninth campaign with the Whites, he’s racked up 15 appearances to date and scored his first goal of the season away at Manchester City.

The 36-year-old’s popularity in SW6 has been long-lasting; he boasts three promotions and was a stand-out performer during the Club's impressive return to the Premier League in 2022 and subsequent 10th place finish in the League last season.

In September, he became the first Fulham player in more than 26 years to make 300 appearances, celebrating the milestone with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United.

He has also remained a key figure for the USA national team and has been called up for international duty twice so far this season.

Tony Khan added: "Tim Ream embodies what Fulham stands for, and I am delighted that with this new contract, he will reach a decade with the Club in 2025.

"He is a huge character on the pitch and in the dressing room and a very important part of Marco’s squad. Mr. Ream is a great favourite amongst our fans too, and I’m sure that you’ll all join me in saying congratulations and thank you, Tim! Come on Fulham!"
