Simon Davies seeks talks over Fulham extension

FULHAM flyer Simon Davies wants to sit down with the club and discuss a new deal.

The former Spurs and Everton winger has only a year left on his contract, and is yet to be offered new terms.

There's been speculation that several of the Whites' top stars could be headed for the exit door after their run to the Europa League final.

But the Welshman is desperate to continue his progress under Roy Hodgson by penning an extension.

He said: "It's been a great couple of years with the gaffer. We've never had a bad run and have done well in consecutive seasons.

"I'll be speaking to the club in the summer. If they offer me a contract I'll sign it.
"

Gianfranco Zola's Bordeaux hopes dashed as former Fulham boss Jean Tigana lined-up to replace Laurent Blanc

Gianfranco Zola's chances of an instant return to management have been dealt a blow by the news Bordeaux will name former Fulham boss Jean Tigana as their new manager.

Italian Zola was sacked by West Ham earlier this month after a disappointing second season in the Premier League.

Bordeaux, meanwhile, lost manager Laurent Blanc after the former Manchester United man opted to take over from Raymond Domenech as France boss after the World Cup.

Tigana has been out of football for three-years since leaving Turkish outfit Besiktas, whom he joined in 2005.

 Despite leading Fulham to the Premier League Tigana left Craven Cottage in acrimonious circumstances in 2003. He was taken to court by the club who insisted he had overpaid for certain players, namely flop Steve Marlet. In return Tigana successfully claimed for wrongful dismissal.

The Malian gave the best years of his playing career to Bordeaux in the 1980s where he won three league titles and two French cups. His international career also thrived alongside Michel Platini, Luis Fernandez and Alain Giresse.

As a coach, Tigana led Lyon and Monaco in the early 1990s.

Player of the Season
 
The 2009/10 season will go down as one of Fulham's most memorable in recent years. The Whites showed great resolve, stamina and skill to attain a healthy finishing position in the Barclays Premier League and reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

However the real story of the season was Fulham's remarkable run in the UEFA Europa League. Their campaign started back in July 2009 against Lithuanian hopefuls FK Vetra. A nervous victory in Amkar Perm in the following round secured our passage in to the group stage, while a brave win in Basel booked our place in the last 32.

The subsequent defeat of cup holders Shakhtar Donetsk impressed many, while the comeback against Juventus still sends shivers down the spine. A fine quarter-final dismissal of German champions Wolfsburg ensued, with another memorable comeback seeing off Hamburg in the semi-final (second leg) at the Cottage.

It was an adventure filled with glory and elation and the players certainly excelled themselves throughout the campaign.

The preliminary round of voting has now closed for the Player of the Season 2009/10. The five players who amassed the most votes are listed below. The final stage of voting for the Player of the Season 2009/10 is now open. The vote will close at midday on Thursday 27th May.

David Elm pleased to sign new Fulham contract

David Elm has signed a new contract with Fulham.

Elm has signed a new two-year deal to keep him at Fulham until June 2012.

Elm, 27, has made just four starts and scored once goal since his £500,000 move from Kalmar FF last summer, but boss Roy Hodgson has decided to extend his Craven Cottage stay.

Elm said: "This year has been an opportunity for me to get use to English football and the tempo. Now I want to compete more seriously for a place in the first team next season, that's my aim.

"It will be tough. We've got a lot of great players but you have to try."

Its going to be a spooky week is'nt it. The rumour mill on players coming in will be nothing to the rumour nuclear reator kicking off if Roy goes to Inter. Many of the players with contracts looming like Davies and Demps and others like Swartz and now Gera all indicate that Roy is the business. Hangers has inferred the same so the impending headline of 'Roy goes to Inter' will alas I feel be the first of many shockers.

Any one know what Steve Clarkes position is or will be at Spam ?
