Fulham have announced that Newcastle transfer target Tom Cairney has signed an extension to his contract at Craven Cottage.

The new deal will keep the 26-year-old at Fulham until 2021, with the option to extend by a further 12 months.

Toon boss Rafael Benitez is a known admirer of the Scotland international and had been tipped to make a substantial bid to try and land the player.

Cairney, however, will now be focusing on trying to get Fulham back into the Premier League ahead of the new season following a dazzling campaign last time out.

The former Hull City and Blackburn star reached double figures in goals and assists in 2016-17 and was named in the Championship PFA Team of the Season, as well as being crowned the London Football Award’s EFL Player of the Year.
