Defender Committed To Fulham

Last updated : 16 December 2008 By Sam
The Norwegian international centre-back has been the subject of media talk suggesting that he could leave Fulham when the transfer window opens next month but he insists that he see's his forseeable future at Craven Cottage.

"It has gone well for me, personally," he said.

"I am pleased with how I have progressed since I came here. It feels like I am on top of my career right now.

"I see myself at Fulham for many years. The club is the right size and has a perfect location.

"That allows us to live in a family-friendly and quiet area which is close to both the stadium and training. That means a tremendous amount to me."

However, Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has been quoted as saying that should a huge bid come in for Hangeland then the club would have to consider the offer.

"If a serious offer comes our way for Brede, I'm pretty sure it will have to be considered," Hodgson has said.

"When the day comes we'll have to take into account all the possibilities and probabilities and make a decision.

"But I would hope and this might be a naive hope, that we could still keep him because he's got a long-term contract with us here."
