Etuhu commits future to Cottagers

07 September 2010 03:24
Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu has signed a three-year contract extension to keep him at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2014.

Etuhu was due to become a free agent at the end of the season and was reported to be a target for Liverpool following Javier Mascherano's departure.

But fears the Nigerian may depart when the transfer window reopens in January have now ended.

A statement issued by Fulham read: "We're delighted to confirm that Dickson Etuhu has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2014."

Etuhu has forged a strong central midfield partnership with Danny Murphy since his £1.5million arrival from Sunderland two years ago.

The duo's form was a key component in Fulham's passage to the Europa League final and the club were eager to keep a player described by former boss Hodgson as their "midfield destroyer".

The 28-year-old opened his account for the new season with a wonderfully-taken late equaliser in last month's 2-2 draw with Blackpool.
