The Norwegian’s current contract expires at the end of the season and the Cottagers have been talking to him for some time about a possible extension.
"It only depends on a decision so if Brede says yes it is okay," the Fulham boss said. "If he says no, then we have to wait, talk and negotiate.
"I will ask Alistair [Mackintosh, chief executive officer] what the situation is after the game [against Newcastle ] again.
"I am confident he will sign because he loves it here. He is a Fulham player.
"We took him from Scandinavia and I think he loves it here and we offered him a good contract."
