Fulham captain Brede Hangeland met with the club's new owner Shahid Khan yesterday in Jacksonville.

The big Norwegian admits there was an air of excitement amongst the players as news of the takeover was revealed last week.

"This week we've been in Costa Rica for our pre-season training camp, where last weekend's announcement was greeted with much positivity and excitement," he said.

"We're only a few weeks away from the start of the new season, and we're very much looking forward to sharing the experience and journey with our new friends here in the States.

"We want to make it a campaign to remember for everyone involved."
