Fulham have handed a new contract to experienced winger Damien Duff to keep him at the club for a further year.
Duff's existing deal was due to the expire in the summer, but boss Martin Jol still believes the former Republic of Ireland star has plenty to offer the team.
The former Newcastle wideman, who turns 34 next month, has scored three times this season in 22 league matches, and is closing in on 150 appearances for the Cottagers since joining them from the Magpies in 2009.
Duff's signature is a major boost for Jol as he attempts to keep together the bulk of his squad with up to ten players set to fall out of contract in the summer.
He told the club's official website: "I've loved my time at Fulham since I joined the club more than three years ago, so I'm really happy that I am going to stay here for a further year.
"With 12 matches remaining this season, a top-10 finish is still possible and would represent another good season for the club as we aim to play in the Barclays Premier League for a 13th consecutive campaign.
"I will always give 100 per cent for the chairman and the club, and I look forward to another season playing at Craven Cottage, which really is a special ground."
