Khan purchased Fulham in 2013 while the club was still in the Premier League, but the London-based Cottagers were relegated to the second-tier League Championship the following season after 13 years at the top level.

If the team that gets promoted survives one season in England's highest division, then they will receive an estimated £280 million with £170 million coming after winning the final and gaining promotion itself.

Having previously taken Birmingham City (2001/02 & 2006/07) and Hull City (2012/13 & 2015/16) into the Premier League from the Championship, he is a dab hand when it comes to these late season pushes.

According to the Deloitte Sports Business Group, the playoff winners are guaranteed £160 million, potentially rising to 280 million if they avoid relegation next season.

"You would want him at any club in any capacity, so, yes, he needs to stay with us".

But they defended heroically to end the club's four-year exile from the Premier League. "There was no association with the players anymore, it had broken", said Bruce.

Fredericks, who says his future is "up to people behind the scenes", added: "We were saying before the game that we only knew how to play one way. We needed two and a half years", he said. "He showed the quality and personality to bring the team to the Premier League, and he's an important player for us". There was great work from teenager Ryan Sessegnon and the Englishman played a slide rule ball into the box for the on rushing Tom Cairney.

"I'd like to think it's been my best season so far", Davies told BBC Sport Wales at the squad's California base.

Robert Snodgrass, Sam Johnstone and Lewis Grabban are among the loan players amounting to a massive wage bill, while the futures of Jack Grealish, James Chester and Jonathan Kodjia would also be plunged into huge doubt.

Cairney was set up wonderfully by Ryan Sessegnon, who delivered an inch-perfect through ball into the path of his teammate for the 1-0 lead. "We got a lot of stick. Unbelievable day", the 23-year-old Serbian said.

Defeat would have put huge pressure on Fulham to sell the left back, who scored 16 Championship goals this season. The last 20 minutes [with 10 men] all we were thinking about was not conceding.
