Breaking: Former Chelsea winger seriously targets new Fulham deal: says I’ve proved myself here.
Willian has opened up that he is looking to bag a new contract with Fulham by the end of this season to make sure he has his place right by the start of a new season.
The 34 year-old’s current deal runs to the end of next month.
Willian said: “I have a contract to the end of June. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I have to speak with the club, and let’s see what happens.
“I feel the same affection for the Fulham fans [as at Chelsea]. If I can stay here, it would be good.
“I am proud of what I have been doing this season. I think a lot of people didn’t believe I could come back to the Premier League and do the same job I was doing a lot of years ago. I am proud of it.”
He added: “When I left Chelsea, Arsenal didn’t work out as I expected. I went back to Brazil, and some people thought I was finished.
“I’ve proved, not for them but for myself, that I can still play in the Premier League.”
