Jimmy Bullard is expecting to be in contract talks with Fulham before the January window.
The England international spoke to the Gazette ahead of the Whites crucial clash with Sunderland tomorrow (Saturday) and reiterated his intention to stay with the club.
Bullard, who turns 30 next week, said mood in the Fulham camp is good, the midfielder says, despite unfortunate recent form culminating in the defeat by West Brom, after a promising start to the season.
He said: "We feel we have been playing really well, we have just not been getting the results. We have to keep playing the way we are and we're confident the results will come."
Fulham are 16th two points shy of Saturday's opponents but are still aiming for a minimum of a top 10 finish.
"Sunderland are good side now but with some good players - it's going to be a tough game. But we feel it's about us now, we have to keep playing well." the Newham born eastender said.
The former Peterbrough United player has been surrounded by rumours since recovering from the cruciate ligament damage which sidelined him for nine months: speculation about a return to Wigan came to nothing.
But the former West Ham United player said: "I've got two years left to run on my contract. And hopefully I will be talking to the club before the January window about a new contract, because that's what I want, to stay and play for Fulham, which is a great club. I'm enjoying my football."
