Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno has signed a new contract that will keep him at the West London club until the summer of 2027.

Leno, who joined Fulham from Arsenal in 2022, has put pen to paper on a contract that includes the option to extend by a further year.

Leno featured in 36 of Fulham's 38 Premier League games last season to help Marco Silva's side achieve a 10th-place finish.

The 31-year-old has continued to play a key role during the current campaign, having featured in all 16 top-flight matches.

The German goalkeeper has kept five Premier League clean sheets this season, including consecutive shutouts in 5-0 victories over Nottingham Forest and West Ham United in Fulham's last two outings.

Leno's performances for the West London club have put him firmly in contention for a spot in the Germany squad for Euro 2024, which will take place in his home country next summer.

The former Arsenal man will have the chance to record a third successive clean sheet when Fulham face Newcastle United at St James' Park on Saturday.

The Club is delighted to announce that Bernd Leno has signed a new contract.

A pillar of consistency since his arrival from Arsenal in 2022, Leno has agreed terms on a deal that keeps him at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2027, with a Club option to extend by a year.

Speaking to FFCtv, Leno said: “I found out about the offer from the Club during the last international break, and it didn’t take much time because I think all parties were very comfortable with it.

“I said straightaway that I want to stay here even longer, so I’m very happy about that, and about the long-term plans of the Club.

“I feel there are still a lot of good years to come from me, and hopefully I can give something back to the Club, to the fans, to the team, to everyone at the Club, and we can be even more successful.”

Tony Khan added: “I'm very happy to announce that Bernd Leno has signed a contract extension tonight with Fulham that will keep him at the Club until 2027, with an option for a further year.

“Everyone at Fulham recognizes the valuable contributions that Bernd has made for us since his arrival. After two clean sheets in exceptional victories in our last two games, it’s also great timing to announce this extension.

“Congratulations Bernd! Come on Fulham!”

Leno’s maiden campaign in SW6 could not have gone much better on both a collective and individual level.

Having come into the side for our third league match of the season, Leno did not miss a minute of Premier League action thereafter as Fulham finished in the top 10 for the first time in over a decade.

Leno was a key performer in that side, duly coming second in the Club’s Player of the Season vote.

It’s form he’s carried into the current campaign, with his shot-stopping prowess and calmness on the ball helping the Whites move into 10th in the standings, while no goalkeeper boasts more clean sheets than Leno’s five.
