Striker Mitrovic ignored interest from a number of Premier League, Spanish and Chinese clubs to commit to Fulham until 2024.

He said: ‘There were a lot of clubs interested but in the end I decided to stay here because I’m really happy and settled at Fulham. My kids, wife, all my family are happy here.’ 

The 24-year-old Serbia international scored 11 top-flight goals last season but it was not enough to keep the club in the Premier League.

A statement on fulhamfc.com read: ‘The club is absolutely delighted to announce that Aleksandar Mitrovic has committed his future to Fulham.

‘Our number nine has agreed a new extended contract with the Whites, keeping him in SW6 until the summer of 2024.

‘A hugely popular figure in the changing room and among the fans, we look forward to having Mitrovic leading the line in our promotion charge.’

Mitrovic joined Fulham from Newcastle in a move worth an initial £22million last summer after scoring 12 times to help them win promotion during a hugely successful loan spell.

The frontman added: ‘I feel great. I’m really happy and I’m looking forward to playing here next season. This is my home and I am really happy to sign a new deal.

‘Since the first day I came here, I have received a great reception from everyone in the club and the fans. I feel motivated and every morning when I come here to work I am happy. I have found my happiness and passion here.’
