Fulham captain Danny Murphy has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until summer 2012.
The 33-year-old former England international has played an instrumental role since he signed from Tottenham in 2007.
Murphy captained the Cottagers to the Europa League final last season following a stunning run that saw Roy Hodgson's team beat, amongst others, giants like Juventus, Wolfsburg and Hamburg.
The former Liverpool and Charlton player will need to use all his experience to help inspire a Fulham side who currently languish just four points off the relegation zone.
"I'm delighted to have signed a contract extension this morning," Murphy told the club's official site.
"As a club we've achieved great things during my time at Fulham so far, not least our highest ever league finish and reaching the Europa League final.
"It is a great source of pride for me, as club captain, to have played a role in some truly historic moments for Fulham Football Club.
"We've made great progress as a club, on and off the pitch over the past few years, and with the chairman's continued support, I believe we've got many more great years ahead of us.
"On Sunday we've got a massive game against Spurs in the FA Cup and as a team we will give our all tomorrow afternoon to earn a place in the fifth round.
"I'm sure it's going to be a great atmosphere at the Cottage and hopefully we can continue our impressive start to 2011."
