Ross McCormack is excited by what the future holds for Fulham after he penned a new deal at the club.

The Whites' talismanic striker, who has scored 18 goals already this campaign, agreed a contract that could take him up to the year 2020.

McCormack, who was linked with an exit in the January transfer window, revealed that he signed the deal on the table because of the visions of owner Shahid Khan and head coach Slavisa Jokanovic.

He told the club's official website: “Having spoken to the owner and manager recently, there is going to be a change in the club in the summer.

“The manager is starting to mould a style of play into us and the lads are pulling in the same direction which maybe hasn't been the case.

“Going back over the last four or five games, minus the Blackburn game where we were poor, it's going to be interesting.”

He added: “The past 18 months haven't been acceptable for a club like Fulham who have been in the Premier league for so long.

“As a footballer, if I'm not playing in the Premier League I want to be in a position to fight for the Premier League.

“I think given all the chats with the owner, the manager and the boys in the dressing room, everyone is as one.”

McCormack has been impressed with the impact Jokanovic has had since he took charge at the end of December.

He explained: “The intensity in training has gone up since he has come in. There seems to be more of a method to what he is doing.

“He knows how to tailor sessions. Maybe some of the boys who haven't been playing need extra.

“I think you don't see the funny side of him and he's got the lads on side with him. You can see the lads are behind him.”

The striker went on: “The only thing we want to do now is remain consistent. Maybe we got carried away after a good performance.

“Now we know that nothing gets given to you in this league. If we can remain consistent and pull up the table we'll go into the summer in good stead.”

Impressed: Slavisa Jokanovic

Fulham face high-flying Middlesbrough on Saturday and McCormack, who scored a hat-trick against them last season, believes his side can shock the title chasers.

His personal ambition, though, is to finish as the club's top goalscorer and he is two behind Andre Gray.

He said: “The most important thing is the club staying in the division. We can beat anyone in this league and we'll hopefully show Middlesbrough that we're every bit as good as them.

“I never put pressure on myself to score or create goals. Once you get to that level where you've scored a few and you're behind Andre Gray I want to finish as top scorer.

“Whether I can do that remains to be seen. There's no target but I want to be at the top as I was at Leeds.”
