The Serbian will expect some funds to strengthen the squad in the close season - as well as keeping the club's best players like Sessegnon and 27-year-old Cairney.

Aston Villa piled pressure on Fulham midway through the game as they aimed to draw level but Londoners dealt well with their threats.

Expect some great things from this 18-year old.

The prize at stake in this game was worth so much more than just promotion to the Premier League, with the cash windfall that it brings with it meaning so much to the future of both clubs.

The Cottagers finished third in the table this season after their 23-match unbeaten run came to an end on the final day of the campaign - and Serbia striker Aleksandar Mitrovic paid tribute to his compatriot after their success under the arch in north London.

Despite their superior experience, Aston Villa succumbed to defeat.

A first-half strike from Tom Cairney put Fulham into the lead and although Denis Odoi was dismissed during the second half, the Cottagers held on to secure a deserved win.


Grealish raced to head just over with the goal gaping before Hourihane's cross-shot threatened, but Fulham were looking risky on the break and Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded wide.

Bruce insisted Villa remain in a position to recover from their disappointment and again challenge for promotion next season, despite what threatens to be a hard summer.

When it comes to taking teams from the Championship and into the Premier League, Steve Bruce is an absolute master.

The news was met with wide ridicule from football fans, many of whom may already have a strong dislike of the former England captain.

"We can not copy them because they are a different team and play in another way". The form of Slavisa Jokanovic's team during the second half of the season perhaps made them the strongest in the Championship, and their expansive, attacking football means they have numerous admirers.

This was no coincidental collision, Fredericks knew exactly what he was doing and a red card should have been given. Ryan Fredericks certainly seemed to let the occasion better of him when he stamped on Jack Grealish on the half-hour mark.
