Striker keen on longer Craven Cottage stay

Skysports.com understands David Elm is keen on signing a new deal at Fulham. The Swedish striker has enjoyed a run in the side in recent weeks after injuries sustained by Andy Johnson and Clint Dempsey. The 27-year-old, who joined Fulham in the summer from Kalmar FF, has impressed in the last few games, including scoring his first goal for the club in the 3-0 success over Burnley last week. Elm originally signed a one-year deal at Craven Cottage with the club holding the option to extend it. The player's agent, Patrick Mork, has revealed Fulham have indicated they are ready to take up the option to extend Elm's deal for a further two years and that they have up until the end of March to activate the clause in his contract. "Nothing about a new deal has happened as yet, but we have got indications off Fulham that they want keep David," Mork told skysports.com. "They have shown positive indications about taking up a two-year option in his contract and I would be surprised if they didn't. "David would be delighted to sign a longer contract at Fulham as he is enjoying himself there. "They have until March 31st to take up the option and if they don't I am sure there will be other clubs who will be interested in David. "He is getting more confident now he is playing regularly and he is happy playing under Roy Hodgson."
