Fulham have agreed terms on one year contract extensions for four members of their squad, according to Sky Sports.

It was thought that we could be entering a period of instability at Craven Cottage, after the Cottagers were officially relegated from the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, but club officials have moved quickly to avoid that being the case.

Scott Parker was confirmed last week as the man to lead Fulham in the Championship next term, and now at least four of their playing squad will be joining him on the journey.

Denis Odoi is the first of the quartet to put pen to paper on a new deal. He was a regular in the Cottagers’ last promotion campaign, and will hope to play a key role in getting them back into the Premier League at the first opportunity.

Floyd Ayite found game time hard to come by this term, although that did improve when Parker took up the Fulham reins, and he is another who has had a year added to his contract.

The other two men to be retained by the Cottagers came as something of a surprise. Stefan Johansen was one of them, but he has spent the second half of the campaign on loan at West Bromwich Albion, who he is hoping to guide to Wembley on Tuesday night when they take on Aston Villa in the Championship play-offs.

Neeskens Kebano is the other man being kept on by Fulham. He only made nine appearances this term, the last of which was from the bench against Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

Parker is expected to undergo a serious reshaping of his squad during the upcoming transfer window, as he looks to mastermind an immediate promotion for the Cottagers, but his task has been made a little easier by the four men extending their deals to cover the season to come.
