Brede Hangeland is delaying new contract talks at Fulham.

The People says the defender's contract runs out next summer and no new agreement is close at this stage.

Fulham are keen to extend his deal but Hangeland has been holding off as he does not want to make a decision until the end of the year.

The centre-half, who has been at Craven Cottage since 2008, wants to weigh up his options, particularly in light of the big names who have recently left.
