Fulham have announced that midfielder Josh Onomah has signed a contract extension running to the summer of 2023 with an option for a further 12 months.

Onomah joined Fulham on the last day of the 2019 transfer window as part of the £25m deal taking Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham Hotspur.

In his first season at Fulham he has played 32 times and scored four goals including a brilliant individual goal in the away leg of the Play-off Semi-final at Cardiff.

Fulham FC statement
We are pleased to announce that Josh Onomah has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2023.

The Club also has an option to extend the deal by a further year.

After signing, Onomah said: “I’m delighted. It’s always been my dream to play in the Prem properly, and I feel like I have the chance to do that here at Fulham.

“Thankfully I’ve been offered a new contract which is amazing, especially after the season we had. It shows the faith and trust that the Club has in me, and that’s what you need as a player.

“From the first minute I walked in I felt the love from the players, staff, fans, everyone involved with Fulham Football Club. I’m just going to keep going, this is just the start.”

And Tony Khan added: “I’m very excited to announce that Josh Onomah has signed a contract extension to the summer of 2023, with an option.

“Josh played a major role in our promotion, he has quickly become part of our Fulham family, I’m thrilled to extend his contract, and we all hope and expect that he’ll continue to contribute to our success in the Premier League! Come on Fulham!”

Scott Parker had been a long time fan of Onomah’s, having worked with him at Tottenham Hotspur, and his faith in the midfielder certainly paid dividends in his maiden season.

Having worked his way into the starting XI, Onomah’s performances improved with every appearance he made in black and white, with his first goal arriving in style to see off Leeds United in December.

Towards the end of the campaign he had become one of the first names on the teamsheet, with his form post-lockdown one of the key components of Fulham’s promotion.

He hit three goals when football resumed, including a stunning solo effort in the first Play-Off match in Cardiff which will forever be fondly remembered by the Fulham faithful.

Onomah was also a key performer in the Final at Wembley, causing the Brentford defence no end of problems with his bursts from midfield, and finished second only to match-winner Joe Bryan in the Man of the Match voting for that game.
