The Senegalese midfielder has made a huge impression for The Cottagers following a summer switch from Lens.
Nicknamed 'The Wardrobe', Diop has proved an imposing presence in the heart of Fulham's midfield, and has chipped in with several crucial goals - four in his last eight games.
The African star is now hoping to finish his first season in England with a flourish by progressing to the FA Cup final, and clinching a place in next season's Uefa Cup.
"I'm happy here at Fulham but we need to carry on improving and getting results," he stated.
"I have many ambitions, what I'd like to do is get to the FA Cup final and win a place in the Uefa Cup, and help try and establish the club in the top five.
"That's the least we can do, but things are going well."
