Hangeland delighted with Fulham welcome
"I know all the other Norwegian players playing in the Premier League. There's Gamst Pedersen at Blackburn, Riise at Liverpool and John Carew at Aston Villa. I have spoken to all of them since moving here and I also know a few people around London as well, so it won't be a problem for me to settle in."
Hangeland actually adds to Fulham's big American contingent, as he was born in Texas.
"t came about because my father works for a Norwegian oil company in Houston, which is the oil capital of the United States. We were there for a short period in 1980/81, which is when I was born and then we went back home, so obviously I don't remember too much about my time there!"
