Hengeland’s agent confirms interest
Brede Hangeland’s agent has confirmed that a number of clubs are interested in the Fulham centre-back.
The Norwegian is out of contract at the end of the season, and was the subject of speculation regarding a move to QPR during January.
Although reports have circulated in recent weeks that he could renew his deal at Craven Cottage, no official agreements have been announced, leaving the 31-year-old’s future up in the air.
This lack of certainty has led to rumours that he could move on this summer, and his agent, Rune Hauge, has revealed that a number of European sides are interested in Hangeland:
“There have been some enquiries about what is going on.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.
“That includes top clubs, but no offers. We do not have permission to negotiate with other English clubs yet.”
Hague went on to confirm that discussions with Fulham are ongoing, but that the longer they take the less likely it is that the Scandinavian will stay with the Cottagers:
“We are still negotiating.” Hauge told the Norwegian media.
“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.”
If Hangeland leaves it will be a big blow to the club, with the commanding centre-back a fans’ favourite in west London.
