Promising Fulham youngster Kerim Frei has signed an extended deal with the London club.

Fulham have extended the contract of highly promising youngster Kerim Frei on a deal which will see him stay at the club until 2015, and the deal could be extended a further year beyond that.

Frei is a Switzerland U19 international, who has come through the Cottagers youth ranks, having spent his formative years with Grasshoppers Zurich, and has this season made the breakthrough to the first team, appearing in 16 league and cup cup games for the club.

Fulham boss Martin Jol paid tribute to Frei's progression, stating;

He listens and works hard on the training pitch and his improvement since I started has been very impressive, so much so that I now consider him very much part of the first team squad. As long as he continues to progress and work hard, he has a very bright future ahead of him.

Frei heads a list of many promising young players at the club, and fans will be hoping he, along with the likes of Patjim Kasami and Orlando Sa heralds the start of a more youthful movement at a club which has in more recent times been a place where older players come to see out their final years.
