Fulham duo Joao Palhinha and Harrison Reed have signed new contracts with the club.

The pair have agreed to stay until 2028 and 2027 respectively, with the club holding an option to extend by a further year.

Palhinha, who was reportedly close to joining Bayern Munich on Transfer Deadline Day, spoke of his delight to sign a new deal with Fulham.

“I feel happy. A lot of history happened these few weeks for me, you heard a lot of things about my future, but I’m just focused on my work at Fulham,” the Portuguese midfielder told the club's official website.

“I always have 100 per cent commitment with this club, I have all the respect for the club, for the fans. Since the first day, they supported me a lot, and me and my family felt this since the first moment that I arrived here.

“I have a lot of respect for everyone here in Fulham and I am ready to start again, to give all my best, and I want to achieve good things.”

Having arrived last summer from Sporting Lisbon, Palhinha proved an instant hit with Fulham as he made the most tackles in the Premier League last season with 147.

Reed is spending his fifth season as a Fulham player and was an extremely reliable figure in 2022/23, featuring in 37 of the club's 38 Premier League matches.

“I’m buzzing to get it over the line. It’s something we’ve been working on for a short period, but I’m really happy to put pen to paper," the 28-year-old told the club website.

“I made it clear from the first day that, for me, my future was here, and if the club matched that then let’s get something done.

“Thankfully, the club’s ambition aligned with mine, so I’m really happy and looking forward to the future.”

Fulham have made an indifferent start to their 2023/24 season having taken four points from as many matches.

They are back in action this weekend when they host Luton Town on Saturday 16 September.
