Nigerian-Born England U-19 Star Edun Extends Fulham Stay Until 2020

English Championship club Fulham have extended the contract of Nigerian-born England U-19 midfielder, Tayo Edun, until 2020.

Edun's contract extension was announced on Fulham's official website on Friday.

The 19-year-old is a teammate of Nigerian forward, Sone Aluko at Fulham.

"We are delighted to announce that Tayo Edun has signed a new contract with the Club," Fulham said in a statement.

"The versatile 19-year-old has agreed a three-year deal, keeping him at Craven Cottage until at least the summer of 2020.

"Having graduated through the ranks of the Academy, Edun made his First Team breakthrough last term in the EFL Cup victory over Leyton Orient, and went on to make three appearances in the competition for Slaviša Jokanović’s side.

"The season ended in style for Edun, as he was a crucial part of the England side which triumphed at the Under-19 European Championship, starting every match as the Young Lions lifted the trophy in Georgia."

Edun made his professional debut for Fulham on 9 August 2016 in a League Cup match against Leyton Orient.
