McBride extends Fulham contract while team gets ready for a boardroom shake-up

US striker Brian McBride signed a one-year extension on his contract with Fulham over the weekend. This move means McBride will be with the club till summer 2007.

McBride has scored 10 goals this season and Fulham boss Chris Coleman told the club's website: "I cannot speak highly enough about the player.

"He has probably been one of our most impressive and consistent this season."

McBride is one of the main reasons Fulham is not sitting in the bottom three of the Premiership and they are lucky to keep him.

Fulham has also announced that two board members could soon be leaving. The statement reads:

In line with the board of directors' vision for the future success of the club, Fulham is currently undergoing a managerial restructure.

Part of this process may include redundancies which in any organisation is of course regrettable.

However, its purpose is to ensure that the business moves forward successfully both on and off the field and that its long term commercial viability is secured.

None of these changes will involve playing management.
