Fulham have offered manager Slavisa Jokanovic a new contract but he will reportedly not enter negotiations with the club until he has stabilised them in the Premier league.
The 50-year-old has enjoyed a sustained period of success since being appointed Fulham boss in December 2015, successfully guided them to promotion from the Championship last season.
The Serb quickly set about adding to his squad ahead of their Premier League return, with no fewer than 12 players arriving during the summer although they have lost their opening two matches of the new campaign against Crystal Palace and Tottenham.
Jokanovic admitted after last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Spurs that he will need time to mould his team together and it appears as though he has now put contract talks on hold for the next few months.
The former defensive midfielder has one year remaining on his current deal at Craven Cottage and it is believed Fulham have offered him a new three-year contract that will run until the summer of 2022.
There appears to be no concerns that Jokanovic wants to leave the club and he is instead putting Fulham’s needs before his own personal interests.
The Cottagers are next in action when they play host to Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday and they are priced at 2.05 to win that match, while the Clarets are available at 3.80 and the draw is on offer at 3.40.
