Fulham back in Premier League with playoff win over Villa

  • GETTYAston Villa transfer news Alan Hutton is set to stay at Villa Park

While Fulham can contemplate life in the top flight for the first time in four years, Aston Villa must spend another season in the netherworld of the Championship.

Should Villa earn promotion next season, Grealish would likely jump at the chance to commit his future to the Birmingham club and help re-establish them in the Premier League.

The third Championship side to secure promotion to the English Premier League has now been revealed, following Saturday's play-off final at Wembley Stadium. Financial muscle is supposed to dictate the order of things these days, but Fulham now join Bournemouth and Huddersfield as gatecrashers in the promised land of the Premier League and only the most ardent of Villa fans could argue.

That figure could rise to in excess of 280 million pounds ($370 million) if the club from southwest London survives its first season back in the Premier League. Personally, I would like him to stay. "This is our project, this Fulham is my club, my staff", said the Whites boss. "There was no association with the players anymore, it had broken", said Bruce. "We must adapt ourselves; we know what is ahead of us". The attacking midfielder is known less for his aerial prowess and more for his silky footwork, which we saw just before the hour mark, when he escaped numerous Fulham defenders only to be denied by Marcus Bettinelli from close-range. After representing his country at u21s level, Targett could even push himself into the reckoning for the senior team with regular Premier League game-time.

"We believe we can play this way", manager Slavisa Jokanovic said after the Wembley win. The pitch suits us, with the way we play football.

Cairney struck after 23 minutes, clinically slotting the ball home from an inch ideal pass by Ryan Sessegnon at the end of a rare flowing move in a cagey first half. Promotion is vindication for the glorious front-foot manner in which Fulham have flummoxed countless teams this season. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.

"We had another mountain to climb when Denis got sent off but we have had loads of those this season".

"I watched it at home and l had tears in my eyes. l am so proud of my little man, his whole family are".
