Johnson, 30, is a free agent in the summer and has struggled with injuries over the last few years. However, the former England striker is getting back to his best and has scored eight goals in eight games - including a stunner against Wisla Krakow in the Europa League - and thinks that any new deal must impress him before he commits.

Johnson told The Sunday Mirror: "They have made me an offer to stay and I don't feel it's appropriate to go into the details of that offer. But I have to take into account many things before I can commit my future to the club and I feel the contract should reflect my worth.

"It will be the last big contract of my career and primarily I have to do what is right by my family. And if the contract doesn't reflect that then I will weigh up my options. I have faced adversity in my career but I would like to think the Fulham supporters have always appreciated that I have given my best when I played."

Cottagers boss Martin Jol has previously admitted that Johnson is holding on for a deal until the summer of 2014, but the club are reported to only be ready to give him one until 2013.
