IRELAND INTERNATIONAL STEPHEN Kelly has signed a new contract with Fulham, which will keep him at the club until 30 June 2014.
The full-back enjoyed a successful season last year, as he solidified his place in the first team, making 33 appearances for Martin Jol’s men.
Speaking to Fulham’s official website following the news, Kelly said:
“I’m delighted that it’s sorted now and I can hopefully continue on from last year. It was a really good end to the season with the way we finished off, the way we were playing and I just hope we can continue on with that again.
“Last season was fantastic for me, playing pretty much every game from Christmas onwards and to cement myself as the number one right-back was great and hopefully I can continue on with that this season.
“To sign another contract here is fantastic. I’m delighted to be staying at the Club and I just want to carry on with the progression I’ve made over the last year or so.”
The player made the Ireland squad for Euro 2012, but did not feature in any of the side’s three matches.
