Dickson Etuhu has signed a contract extension at Fulham which will keep him at the club until 2014.
The midfielder joined the Cottagers from Sunderland in the summer of 2008 and has become a mainstay in the starting XI since then.
He was able to strike up an instant understanding with skipper Danny Murphy and the pair have played an integral role in the club's recent success.
Not averse to getting stuck in, while remaining more than capable of knocking the ball around, Etuhu has proven to be a shrewd acquisition for the Cottagers.
They hope there will be more to come from the 28-year-old in the future, with his career having gone from strength to strength.
Over the course of the past 12 months, he has turned out for Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations and the 2010 World Cup and helped Fulham reach the final of the Europa League.
Etuhu has also started the 2010/11 season in scintillating form, with new boss Mark Hughes seemingly able to bring the best out of him.
He opened his goal account for the new term in the Cottagers' last Premier League outing against Blackpool, and will be hoping to maintain his current high standards throughout the course of the campaign.
