Slavisa Jokanovic has confirmed Fulham turned down a £20million bid from Newcastle for midfielder Tom Cairney.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a fine season for the Cottagers as they made the play-offs before losing to Reading on penalties in the semi-final.

The Scotland international was linked with a move to St James' Park in January with Aston Villa also understood to be interested.

But boss Jokanovic, while confirming an offer was rejected, says Cairney should stay at Craven Cottage.
