Fulham Duo Denis Odoi and Joe Bryan Sign New Deals

Denis Odoi: A Vital Part of the Squad

32-year-old Odoi has won promotion with Fulham twice now, both via the Championship play-offs.

The second and most recent one rounded off a remarkable four seasons with the Cottagers. His versatility – Odoi can operate as a full-back as well as central defender – meant he was a useful addition to Scott Parer’s side last season.

As a result, Fulham have been keen to keep the Belgian at Craven Cottage. Speaking to the official Fulham website, Tony Khan said: “I’m glad to announce that Denis has signed a contact extension to stay with Fulham for at least two more years. Denis has played a big part in both of our promotions in the past few years, and he is a great competitor with a tremendous work ethic so I’m very pleased to extend his contract.”

Odoi added: “I’m happy, as it’s given me this season and next season guaranteed at the Club. I’m enjoying my life here, so I’m really happy that I can stay here an extra two years.”

Play-Off Final Hero Extends His Stay

Left-back Joe Bryan proved to be the unlikely hero to help Fulham seal promotion. His brace in the play-off final, including an outstanding free-kick, saw the Cottagers defeat West London rival Brentford.

As a result of his performances last season and commitment to the club, Bryan has agreed a new deal. Scott Parker is keeping faith in Bryan as Fulham return to the Premier League; the 26-year-old started their 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend, and is the first-choice left-back at Craven Cottage.

Speaking about his new contract, Bryan said: ““I’m obviously delighted to commit a couple more years to the club.

“We’re in the Premier League now so it’s nice to be able to give myself more time to develop and prove myself as a Premier League player.

“We came together as a team last year and it was nice to be able to repay a bit of the faith that the Club and supporters have shown in me during my time here, by helping the Club back into this league.

“Now it’s about improvement and making the step up again, to try and become an established Premier League team.”

Josh Onomah Joins Duo in Extending

Fulham have also tied down midfielder Josh Onomah to a new contract.

Like Bryan, the 23-year-old has signed a new three-year deal. Onomah made 31 appearances for Fulham last season, scoring three goals and registering three assists.

Speaking about his new deal, Onomah said: “I’m delighted. It’s always been my dream to play in the Prem properly, and I feel like I have the chance to do that here at Fulham.

“Thankfully I’ve been offered a new contract which is amazing, especially after the season we had. It shows the faith and trust that the Club has in me, and that’s what you need as a player.

“From the first minute I walked in I felt the love from the players, staff, fans, everyone involved with Fulham Football Club. I’m just going to keep going, this is just the start.”
