Hodgson welcomes Hangeland to Fulham

Fulham have completed the signing of FC Copenhagen defender Brede Hangeland.

Norway international Hangeland has penned a three-and-a-half year deal that will see the player at the club until the summer of 2011.

Prior to joining FC Copenhagen in 2006, 26-year-old Hangeland played under Roy Hodgson at FK Viking, where he was made club Captain.

Hodgson told fulhamfc.com: "I am delighted to welcome Brede to Fulham and I think he will prove to be a tremendous signing for us.

"I am of course very familiar with his ability and am confident that he will help our defensive options, and play an important part in the remaining games of this, and the following seasons."
