Fulham owner Khan assures fans: We'll buy - but not at expense of unity

Fulham owner Shahid Khan says they'll be better prepared for their Premier League return next season.

When the Cottagers last won promotion in 2018 owner Khan splashed out over £100m on 12 new players, most of whom flopped.

But he will not spend big this time, instead giving manager Scott Parker, who is set to sign a new contract, more control of transfers.

In an open letter to Fulham fans, Khan wrote: “Be assured that we will be a team, in its truest sense, moving forward.

“We will be unafraid to improve and add pieces to our lineup, but not at the expense of the spirit and soul of a squad that bled, battled and sacrificed to return Fulham to the Premier League.

“Building a squad can be a tricky proposition for a newly promoted club, and that is especially true this year with the start of the season already nearly upon us.

“Turnover in football is inevitable. But, this Club has Premier League experience and our players, as well as our young and promising Head Coach, love Fulham Football Club.

“There is a lot to like in this team today, and just as much to like in our future."
