New Deal For Mitro

Sunday 7 July 2019 18:50

The Club is absolutely delighted to announce that Aleksandar Mitrović has committed his future to Fulham.

Our number nine has agreed a new extended contract with the Whites, keeping him in SW6 until the summer of 2024.

A hugely popular figure in the changing room and amongst the fans, we look forward to having Mitrović leading the line in our promotion charge.

The 24-year-old demonstrated his Premier League pedigree last season, topping the scoring charts for Fulham with 11 goals.

That followed an incredibly successful loan spell at Craven Cottage, where he netted 12 times in less than half a season en route to Wembley as Fulham won promotion via the 2017/18 Play-Offs.

He has also since gone on to win Serbia’s Golden Ball award, and now boasts a record of 25 goals in 48 matches for his country.

“I feel great. I’m really happy and I’m looking forward to playing here next season,” Mitrović told fulhamfctv. “There were a lot of clubs interested but in the end I decided to stay here because I’m really happy and settled at Fulham. My kids, wife, all my family are happy here. This is my home and I am really happy to sign a new deal.

“Since the first day I came here I have received a great reception from everyone in the Club and the fans. I feel motivated and every morning when I come here to work I am happy. I have found my happiness and passion here.”

Tony Khan added: “Aleksandar Mitrović has been a huge part of Fulham Football Club since he first arrived here in 2018 and helped fuel our run of 23 consecutive games unbeaten and our subsequent promotion to the Premier League. Mitro is a world class goal-scorer at any level and an amazing talent, but he’s also an incredible person off the pitch, he’s a leader at this football club and a great friend to his teammates and our entire staff, and he’s such a beloved hero to our supporters.

“Likewise, he loves Fulham and our awesome supporters and playing at Craven Cottage, we’ve all made him feel that Fulham is his home. I've been clear that keeping Mitro in our squad was our top priority, and I’m grateful to him for his loyalty that he’s committed to our club and this promotion campaign ahead. Thank you Mitro, we are fortunate to have you as part of this Fulham family.

“Come on, Fulham!”
