Top clubs chasing Fulham's Hangeland

Jan Kruger

Defender's deal runs out at the end of the season

Brede Hangeland's agent believes that the longer his client's contract saga goes on, the less likely he is to sign a new deal with Fulham.

The Norwegian has been stalling on a new contract for some time now, the club having offered him fresh terms earlier in the season.

Yet, while Martin Jol has come across as quietly confident that his skipper would commit to the club, the sheer length of time it has taken for Hangeland to make his decision has raised various questions over his future.

And the player's representative, Rune Hauge, has made it clear that various top clubs are chasing his signature.

"Yes, there have been some enquiries about what is going on," Hauge said, when pressed about his client's options.

"That includes top clubs, but no offers. We do not have permission to negotiate with other English clubs yet."

But Hauge was also keen to stress that Hangeland could still stay with Fulham.

"We are still negotiating." he said.

"But the longer it takes to reach an agreement, the chance that he will stay is decreasing.

"At the same time, Brede is happy at Fulham and the club is happy with him. We will see in one or three months."
