Fulham striker Ross McCormack has signed a one-year contract extension.

The 28-year-old only joined the Cottagers last summer when they paid Leeds United £11million for his signature.

McCormack, whose previous deal was due to expire in 2018, will now remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2019.

Last season's expected promotion challenge never transpired and indeed McCormack's 17 goals played a huge part in Fulham staying in the Championship.

He was subsequently voted player of the season by the Fulham's supporters.

McCormack has also attracted interest from a number of clubs this summer with Norwich, Bournemouth, Derby and Middlesbrough all casting admiring glances towards him.

But Fulham have moved quickly to tie down the prized asset to a new long-term deal.

The Scotland international decided to pen his new deal after talks with boss Kit Symons, who is looking for McCormack to.lead their promotion charge.

"I'm really happy," the former Leeds player said.

"When I signed for the club I had an optional year on my contract so the club and I have come to the agreement to extend that.

"I think if we don't get in the playoffs it will be another disappointing season. I've been in this league a long time and know promotion is not easy, but we have points targets and then we will see where we are come February and March."
