Murphy agrees Fulham extension

Fulham captain Danny Murphy signed a contract extension with the Premier League club today.

Murphy, who joined the Cottagers from Tottenham Hotspur in 2007, is now tied to the west London team until the end of the 2011-12 season.

The former Liverpool midfielder scored the goal that kept Fulham in the Premier League in 2008 and played a key role in their fairytale run to the UEFA Europa League final last season.

"I'm delighted to have signed a contract extension," Murphy told Fulham's website.

"As a club we've achieved great things during my time at Fulham so far, not least our highest-ever league finish and reaching the Europa League final, and it is a great source of pride for me, as club captain, to have played a role in some truly historic moments for Fulham Football Club.

"We've made great progress, on and off the pitch over the past few years, and with the chairman's continued support, I believe we've got many more great years ahead of us."
