Fulham full-back Antonee Robinson has signed a new long-term contract which keeps him at the London club until 2028.

The USA international, 25, made 35 Premier League appearances last season as Fulham finished 10th.

Robinson, who signed for Fulham in 2020 for £2m from Wigan Athletic, had been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage.

Fulham FC statement
The Club is delighted to announce that Antonee Robinson has signed a new long-term contract.

After helping Fulham to a 10th place finish in the Premier League with an incredibly consistent season at left-back, Robinson has now pledged his future to the Club by agreeing terms on a deal that runs until the summer of 2028.

Speaking to FFCtv, Robinson said: "To the fans who have stuck by me, supported me ever since I've been at this Club, it's been one hell of a ride.

"Some ups, some downs, especially off the back of last season, I just want to thank you for your massive support.

"I'm going to repay that support with a lot of hard work to improve myself, and continue to grow as a team."

Tony Khan added: "I'm so glad to announce that Antonee (Jedi) Robinson has extended his contract with Fulham. Following one of the best Premier League seasons in the history of Fulham Football Club, it's very exciting to confirm that Jedi will be with us for years to come.

"Since his arrival in 2020, he's been a very important part of the Fulham squad. He's a tenacious defender and a remarkable athlete, with great pace that serves us well up and down the pitch, through his hard work in defence and the great service he provides to our attack.

"Jedi's also a remarkable person, both on and off the pitch. He's a great friend and a great teammate, beloved by his squad and the staff with whom he works, both here at Fulham as well as the USMNT, where he's also a very important player.

"It's great news tonight for all of us at Fulham, and for all of the club's supporters, that we've extended his contract!

"Congratulations Jedi! Come on Fulham!"

Since joining from Wigan Athletic in 2020, Robinson has made more than 100 appearances for Fulham, making the left-back spot his own in the process.

After helping the Whites win the Championship in 2022, Robinson took his game to a new level last season as a key part of an uncompromising backline, while also offering a considerable threat at the other end of the pitch.

He also established himself as the first choice left-back for the United States, playing all but one minute of their World Cup campaign as they reached the knock-out stages in Qatar, and now sits on 33 caps.
