Duff extends stay at Cottage

Damien Duff has signed a one-year extension to his contract with Fulham which will keep him at Craven Cottage until summer 2013.

The 30-year-old Ireland international has become a key player for the club since joining from Newcastle in August 2009, and helped the Cottagers reach the 2010 Europa League final.

Duff said: "I've enjoyed every minute of my time at Fulham since joining two years ago and I'm delighted to be staying at the Cottage until at least 2013.

"This is a fantastic club with great supporters and it's a very exciting time to be part of the team.

"I feel in great condition and I'm hungry to achieve more success for this club. We've had some great moments together and I believe there's more to come from us in the Premier League and Europe this season under Martin Jol."

Duff began his senior career at Blackburn, winning the League Cup with Rovers in 2002 before switching to Chelsea the following year.

He won two Premier League titles and another League Cup during a three-year stint at Stamford Bridge before signing for Newcastle, where he spent a less successful three years prior to his transfer to Fulham.
