John Terry 'bids farewell to Aston Villa teammates'

There is no denying that a team of this quality deserved to be promoted, although Aston Villa and Steve Bruce will feel their second-half showing merited more. Villa regardless created chances that superior teams would have taken, so Fulham could prove at risk by playing that same way in the Premier League.

Tom Cairney's 23rd-minute goal was the difference as Fulham capped a remarkable turnaround in the second half of their season to join Wolverhampton and Cardiff in the Premier League next season.

The average age of Fulham's side was just over 25 while man-for-man, Villa were five years older than their counterparts.

"I don't know that you can describe what the feeling is right now and the emotions, and the release of everything that's gone on this season, in the second half of the season", Ream told Sky Sports.

Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon looks the part (Barrington Coombs/EMPICS).

Another player linked with a move away from the club, Cairney scored the all-important goal to send Fulham back into the Premier League, leading by example. Ryan Fredericks certainly seemed to let the occasion better of him when he stamped on Jack Grealish on the half-hour mark.

Mitrovic fell out of favour there, but has rejuvenated himself at Fulham and certainly did not rule out a stay at Craven Cottage in the aftermath of Saturday's win.

Since arriving on loan at Fulham, the striker has played 20 times, with 15 wins, three draws and only two defeats, scoring 12 times and helping the West London club into the Premier League. We've had to balance the books, something which, over the past two windows in particular, I've come to get used to.

The 18-year-old, Fulham's top scorer, turned creator by skipping past one challenge and slipping a weighted pass through to the unchallenged Cairney, who rolled a calm finish into the far corner.

"I am getting more and more experiences the more I play".

And so, when the final whistle blew, it was Jokanovic who celebrated, not Bruce.

Terry, whose contract will officially expire at the start of next month, has been tipped to see out his career in the United States or take up a player-coach role elsewhere. "But now, I do believe they have enjoyed seeing what we have got at the moment".
