New Deal For Norman

Monday 19 February 2018 10:00

We are delighted to announce that Magnus Norman has agreed a contract extension at Fulham.

The new deal sees the goalkeeper commit his future until the summer of 2019, with a Club option to extend by a further year.

Norman joined Fulham in June 2006, which makes him the longest serving professional footballer on our books, just ahead of Marcus Bettinelli and Elijah Adebayo.

The 21-year-old has represented the Whites at every age group, and was recently on the First Team bench for our Emirates FA Cup meeting with Southampton at Craven Cottage.

“I’m really happy,” Norman told fulhamfc.com. “I’ve been here since I was nine so it’s great to extend my contract by another year, and hopefully I can push on and potentially make my debut.

“I love it here. I know everyone throughout the Club, and being with the First Team this year has been good experience.

“Being part of matchday squads is just the best feeling. The atmosphere at the stadiums, warming up, and the whole experience of travelling is just really good.

“That’s all the motivation you need, that’s where you want to be, playing in those big stadiums with those crowds.

“All the way through I’ve looked up to Betts – he is who I want to be like, progressing through all the age groups to become Fulham’s number one goalkeeper.

“Training with Jose [Sambade Carreira] and the other ‘keepers, we all get on really well. The camaraderie’s good, and we all push each other in training.

“We’re all mates, but at the end of the day we’re all competing for the number one shirt as well.”
