QPR favourites for Fulham defender Hangeland

QPR are favourites for released Fulham defender Brede Hangeland.

QPR are favourites for released Fulham defender Brede Hangeland.

The Daily Mail says Hangeland is set to join Queens Park Rangers after deliberately engineering a difficult split from Fulham.

The Norway defender turned down the opportunity to leave the club on amicable terms after six and a half years in order to try and smooth his path to joining Fulham’s west London rivals.

Hangeland, 32, did not want to play for Fulham in the Championship and agreed to the termination of his contract at Craven Cottage, which had a year left to run, in the hope of securing a £50,000-a-week deal at QPR and avoiding having to move house.

Former Fulham players such as Bobby Zamora, Andrew Johnson and Aaron Hughes have moved to QPR in recent transfer windows and Steve Sidwell could also join Hangeland at Loftus Road next season.
