The club's official website announced the that Stephen Humphrys has signed a contract extension with Fulham, before the joining League 1 outfit Shrewsbury Town, in a loan deal that will run until the end of the season.

The youngsters performances in PL2 have been rewarded with a handful of call ups to the senior side, now he has penned a new deal, that ties him to the club until the summer of 2019, with an option to extend by a further year.

In an interview with the club's website, Humphrys expressed his delight: "I’m buzzing, It’s a big achievement for me, and my family as well. I’ve come a long way since I first came down to Fulham at 15-years-old, and it’s where I see my future as the Club’s definitely going places."

"I’ve been with Shrewsbury for the last few days now training. The club has been really welcoming, and hopefully I can get some goals and help them get out of the sticky spell they’re having at the minute.”

"It will be good to get some League One experience, some proper men’s football, and then hopefully I’ll be ready to come back and score some goals for Fulham."

With Humphrys allowed to depart from the club, is this an indication that Slavisa Jokanovic has his replacement lined up? Only time will tell before the window shuts next week.
