Fulham defender Chris Baird has signed a new contract that is set to keep him at the club until the summer of 2013.

The 28-year-old arrived from Southampton in July 2007 and was a key part of the Cottagers team that reached the Europa League final in May.

The Northern Ireland international made over 50 appearances during the 2009/10 season, playing both in defence and midfield domestically and in Europe.

Baird came on at half-time in Fulham's 2-1 victory over Wolves on Saturday.

He started his career at Ballymena United before joining Southampton's youth academy in 1998 and made his first team debut in March 2003.

Baird joined Fulham for £3m and was signed by then manager Lawrie Sanchez.

He has won over 40 international caps and played in the Northern Ireland team which won 1-0 at Slovenia in a Euro 2012 qualifier on 3 September.
