Hangeland close to signing new deal with Fulham

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland is believed to be close to signing a new deal which will see him remain at Craven Cottage.

The Norwegian international has been attracting interest from Premier League rivals but from recent comments he made, seems content as a Cottager and looking forward to the possibility of European action next season.

"The idea of the Europa League is all a bit new for us - and maybe there would be a bit of disappointment if we don't get there," he said.

"But, either way, we'll look back on this season as a great one.

"Some people have said 'don't go' and I've told them I'm happy here.

"The fans have been very happy with the team this season - and we've been very happy with them."
