Tomas Kalas has rejoined Fulham on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

The Czech Republic defender has returned to Craven Cottage after signing a new four-year-old contract at Stamford Bridge.

Kalas, aged 24, played a key role for Fulham last season when they reached the Championship play-off semi-finals.

He featured in 36 league games and scored in the 5-0 win against Huddersfield in October.

Kalas has played seven times for Czech Republic and is a regular member of the squad looking to qualify for next year's World Cup.

Tony Khan, Fulham vice chairman and Director of Football Operations, told the club's website: "It's a pleasure to welcome Tomas Kalas back to the Fulham Football Club.

"We appreciate Tomas so much after the way that he battled for us last season, demonstrating not only tremendous skill but also great heart and determination.
