Tom Cairney expects promotion to help Fulham keep their best players

Ryan Sessegnon Fulham 2017-18

The United States, China, Japan or perhaps a player-manager role is a likely move for the 37-year-old if he decides to dig out his boots again rather than a clipboard.

Fulham secured their return to the Premier League with a 1-0 defeat of Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final at Wembley on Saturday.

In the second-half, moments after nearly bringing Villa level with a moment of individual magic, it appeared as though he let his frustrations get the better of him. Villa pressured constantly with the man advantage, but couldn't get a clear shot at Marcus Bettinelli's goal.

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has been talking about how proud he is of helping the club after they were relegated from the Premier League. Brighton, Huddersfield, and Newcastle all stayed up and kept the members of the squad that got them to the top flight. If they prove capable of surviving one season, that could even increase to £280million. Luckily for Fulham, they already have a bit of an advantage over the other promoted teams.

Ryan Sessegnon set up the goal for Cairney with a pinpoint through-ball, continuing his influential role for Fulham this season and especially in the playoffs. Ryan Sessegnon retrieved the ball before playing a perfectly-weighted pass through to Cairney, whose calm finish from 10 yards went past Johnstone and into the bottom corner. "I want to play football". He is a high-attacking, smart-defending left-winger, who can play up front or in defense.

There was only misery for Villa as they missed out on promotion on the 36th anniversary of the club's famous European Cup final victory over Bayern Munich.

The 18-year-old has earned rave reviews for his performances this season, with speculation rife about which top-flight side would secure his signature in the close season.

Targett is another who has expressed a desire to stay, while the fact Chelsea can not loan more than one player to the same Premier League club means Kalas and Piazon would have to be signed permanently. Fulham, Wolves, and Cardiff will join the top 17 clubs from the past season.

Ream's only Premier League experience came in 13 games for Bolton Wanderers in 2012, after he left the New York Red Bulls in MLS.

Jokanovic had vowed to take advantage of Villa's veterans, labelling them "an old and exhausted team, they are going to show some weaknesses".
