Fulham defender Philippe Senderos has ended speculation about his future by signing a new one-year contract at Craven Cottage.

The 28-year-old Swiss international was out of contract in the summer and had initially set his heart on a new start away from Fulham.

But having regained his first-team place alongside Breda Hangeland at the heart of the Fulham defence at the expense of Aaron Hughes, Senderos has decided to stay at Craven Cottage until at least the end of next season.

“I’m delighted to extend my stay with the club by a further year,” Senderos told Fulham’s website. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Fulham so far and I love playing for this club. I’m relishing playing first-team football and I’m confident that we can continue our recent good form and end the season strongly. A top-10 finish is certainly achievable.”

Senderos joined Fulham from Arsenal in 2010 on a free transfer and has made almost 50 appearances during an injury-hit three year spell at Craven Cottage.

Senderos had joined Arsenal as 19-year-old from Servette in Switzerland but never managed to enjoy a sustained run in Arsene Wenger’s side. He had loan spells to AC Milan and Everton before moving to Fulham three years ago.

The future of his central defensive partner Hangeland is set to be decided over the coming days with the Norwegian international close to agree new terms of his own.
