Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has confirmed that he is currently in talks with the West London club over an extension to his existing deal at Craven Cottage according to Get West London.

The 48-year-old Serbian boss has overseen a period of transformation on the banks of the Thames since becoming Fulham manager in December 2015.

The Cottagers have bounced back from last season’s battle against relegation in style this term and under Jokanovic’s leadership, the West Londoners find themselves just six points adrift of the Sky Bet Championship Play Off places with 15 matches remaining.

Jokanovic’s current deal at Craven Cottage expires in the summer however the Serbian has confirmed that he is looking to remain at the Fulham helm and is presently holding talks with the club’s hierarchy over a new deal with The Whites.

The former Chelsea midfielder has enjoyed a managerial career which has so far seen him manage a number of clubs across the world. Jokanovic began his managerial career in his homeland with Partizan Belgrade where he won back-to-back Serbian SuperLiga titles and Serbian Cups before lifting the Thai Premier League with Muangthong United. Spells with Levski Sofia and Hercules followed before Jokanovic guided Watford to promotion to the Premier League.

Jokanovic left Vicarage Road after just eight months in charge after failing to agree a new deal and a short spell at Maccabi Tel Aviv followed before his return to England with Fulham. The Serbian has won 40% of his matches as Fulham boss to date. It is hoped that a new deal can be agreed between The Whites and Jokanovic before the end of the season.
