Fulham striker Ross McCormack has signed a one-year contract extension with the Championship club.

The 28-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire in 2018, will now remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2019.

Scotland international McCormack joined the Whites for a reported £11m from Leeds last summer and scored 19 goals in 51 appearances.

He was subsequently voted player of the season by the Fulham's supporters.

"I'm really happy," the former Cardiff player told the club website.external-link

"When I signed for the club I had an optional year on my contract so the club and I have come to the agreement to extend that.

"I know promotion from this league is not easy but if we don't get in the play-offs it will be a disappointing season."
