Knight Commits

Friday 6 July 2007

Fulham Football Club can confirm that Zat Knight has signed a two-year contract extension with the Club.

As the players continued with their pre-season fitness regime at Motspur Park this morning, Knight took a break from training  to put pen to paper on his new deal which will contract him to the Club until the end of the 2009/10 season.

The Solihull born centre back was signed by Kevin Keegan in 1999 and is the Club's longest serving current player. The 27 year-old has made 146 appearances for the Whites and looks set to play an integral role in the heart of Fulham’s defence next season, as Fulham Manager Lawrie Sanchez confirmed.

"Since I arrived at the Club I’ve been impressed with Zat’s commitment and attitude both on and off the pitch. He has a good understanding of the game which is reflected in his positional play.

"It’s no secret that we conceded too many goals last season and that’s something I’m determined to change. With the right back four, that will happen, and I’m sure that Zat will have a big part to play in my plans, so I’m delighted that he has committed his future to Fulham."
