Centre-back Aaron Hughes has signed a one-year contract extension with Fulham.

The Northern Ireland defender will remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2014.

The 32-year-old joined Fulham from Aston Villa in 2007, having come through the ranks at Newcastle.

Hughes told "I am obviously delighted as I have enjoyed my time here so far and to know that I'll be around for another couple of years is a nice thing for me.


"I've had a lot of good experiences so far and hopefully I'll have more between now and 2014."
