Johnson considering Fulham future

Cottagers striker admits he is uncertain about new contract offer

Andrew Johnson joined Fulham in 2008 from Everton for a then record £10.5m

Andrew Johnson has admitted he is unsure about his future at Fulham following a new contract offer from the Club.

The 30-year-old striker, whose current deal expires next summer, has scored eight goals in his last eight matches.

Cottagers manager Martin Jol said Johnson is holding on for a deal until the summer of 2014 but the Club have only offered a deal until 2013.

Johnson said: "They have made me an offer to stay and I don't feel it's appropriate to go into the details of that offer.

"But I have to take into account many things before I can commit my future to the Club and I feel the contract should reflect my worth.

"It will be the last big contract of my career and primarily I have to do what is right by my family. And if the contract doesn't reflect that then I will weigh up my options.

"I have faced adversity in my career but I would like to think the Fulham supporters have always appreciated that I have given my best when I played."
