Fulham and their club captain Scott Parker have entered into discussions about the possibility of a new deal after his current one came to an end.
His current deal was due to expire this month but the two parties are currently in talks about extending it, while nine players have been released after theirs ran out, including Jack Grimmer and Ryan Tunnicliffe.
Parker recently told GetWestLondon that he would talk with his family as to what his next move would be at the end of the season, and it looks like staying at the Cottage is definitely of interest to the 36-year-old.
And to me, that would make perfect sense for both Fulham and Parker.
Having an individual like Parker on board is something most clubs would kill for - the former England international has made over 400 appearances in his career at big clubs like Chelsea, Newcastle, West Ham and Tottenham.
You can't put a price on the that, it's as simple as that.
Half the battle of getting out of the Championship is having players with that type of experience who are able to rally the rest of the side when things get tough, and we all know how tough things can get in the second tier of English football.
Players like Ryan Sessegnon will only benefit from having Parker around - he's a model professional and you can tell just by his warm ups how professional he is, he knows he probably won't get on but he still goes through the exercises as if he's about to play in a European Cup final.
Let's not forget the coaching side to his game.
He's got an UEFA Pro Licence, which would allow him to manage in the Premier League, as well as UEFA A and B licences and the knowledge he could impart on the younger members of the Fulham squad is immeasurable.
Meanwhile, a new Fulham deal would work for Parker as it would allow him to continue his career at a club he knows and at a place where he is happy.
He knows the club having been there since 2013, even sitting on the coaching bench during Peter Grant's caretaker spell with the club, and he knows Slavisa Jokanovic and his methods.
Jokanovic respects his captain and that is so important when you get to the age Parker is at, he won't be tossed to the abyss by his manager just because of his age.
A new deal at Fulham, allowing him to transition easily from Parker the player to Parker the coach, would be ideal for him, the club and the fans, and I personally would like to see the captain still at the club next season/
It just makes sense from all angles.
