Ream signs new Fulham contract

Defender Tim Ream has become the latest Fulham player to sign a new deal.

After skipper Tom Cairney pledged his future to the newly-promoted Premier League club on Thursday, Ream has followed suit and will now remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2020.

Ream told Fulham’s website: “I wanted to sort it out fairly quickly. It gives you the freedom and the licence to go out and focus on the football, so it’s just nice to have it done.

“The goal all along was to be in the Premier League, and now to have the opportunity to play there with this group of guys is something that I think we’re all looking forward to, not just myself, and hopefully we can make it special this year.”
