Fulham man rejects initial contract offer

Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell has rejected the offer of a one-year contract and wants a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the season and Whites boss Martin Jol is keen for him to remain at Craven Cottage.

Sidwell has made it clear he wants to stay, while Jol has indicated that an agreement is likely to be reached.

Jol said: “Of course you get a little bit worried because they all come back and say instead of one year they want three years, but we are talking with Steve.

“We have offered him one year but for me it makes no difference – he can stay for two years for example. Who knows what will happen.”

Sidwell joined Fulham from Aston Villa in 2011 and has made 62 league appearances for the club, scoring nine goals.

The former Arsenal trainee played for Reading and Chelsea before moving to Villa in 2008.
