Midfielder Oliver Norwood has revealed he hopes to return to Fulham in a permanent move after achieving his second promotion to the Premier League in two seasons.

The 27-year-old was signed from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer on a season-long loan deal, making 41 appearances for Slavisa Jokanovic's side as they won promotion to the top tier of English football through the play-offs.

He scored five goals for the side in the process, with the last coming through a last-minute penalty at the Riverside against Middlesbrough that saw the Whites claim all three points in a big win back in January.

Norwood was subject to a bid from Fulham in January, with the club's recruitment department trying to make his loan deal permanent, but that was rejected by his parent club who, at the time, didn't want to lose him without knowing what division they would be in.

However, with Brighton playing in the Premier League next season and with Norwood only having a year left on his contract, it looks likely he will be allowed to leave.

Jokanovic labelled Norwood as 'an important player' for his side back in January and told Football.London that he was hopeful that the Northern Irish international would still be a Fulham player in the coming campaign.

And Norwood himself wants to remain at Craven Cottage, saying: “That’s the plan [to stay] - hopefully it can get sorted as soon as possible, I’ll be patient but hopefully we can get it done.

“It’s a squad game, but to get promoted twice in two seasons I must be doing something right.
