Fulham captain Tom Cairney is determined to help lead the club back into the Premier League after signing a contract extension.

Midfielder Cairney, 28, has agreed terms to stay at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2024, with the option of a year's extension.

Cairney joined the west London club in 2015 from Blackburn and has gone on to make 161 appearances, scoring 28 goals - including the one which took the club up in last season's Championship final.

The midfielder is determined to help Fulham mount a successful promotion campaign again next season following their relegation.

"The club has been amazing to me, and to extend my contract again is an amazing feeling. I want to stay for a long time, and hopefully finish my career here," Cairney told fulhamfctv.

"This place feels like home. I don't think you can put a price on happiness, and your life off the pitch as well, and I can't see myself anywhere else.

"I feel like I've got unfinished business. I want to stay here and I want to get the club back to the Premier League.

"I want to bounce straight back next season. I know how hard the Championship is, but knowing our owners and how ambitious the club is, I'm sure we'll give it a good go."
