Centre-back John Heitinga has revealed he is willing to discuss a new deal with Fulham, should they retain their Premier League status.

The former Everton defender joined the Cottagers on a free transfer during the January transfer window, but is out of contract at the end of the season.

Heitinga has now revealed he was happy to short-term deal at Craven Cottage, but claims he is ready to give his all in Fulham's fight for survival.

Victory over Norwich last weekend saw Fulham move into 18th, just two points adrift of safety.

"I deliberately signed a six-month deal," he said in The Sun. "In principle, I'll be a free agent in July. But our entire focus is on staying up.

"If we do, I aim to sit around a table and discuss a new deal."

Fulham travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham on Saturday before a final run-in consisting of Hull City, Stoke City and Crystal Palace.

Heitinga revealed morale is high in the Fulham dressing room and the Dutchman believes they have the edge of rivals Norwich, who must face Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

"We have always believed we can do it," he added. "The fixture list is in our favour, with Norwich having to play four top sides.

"If we can win two games, we should be safe.

"People raised questions about the manager's training methods. But the simple fact is they have made us super-fit."
