QPR to move for out of contract cottager

QPR want to keep Brede Hangeland in the Premier League next season, and are ready to offer him a deal at Loftus Road.

The Norwegian will leave Fulham after failing to agree a new deal with the recently relegated side, with many reports suggesting the defender was told over e-mail that his contract would not be renewed. Other reports have stated that Hangeland has deliberately left on bad terms to manoeuvre a move to QPR.

The Hoops secured the place back in the Premier League after a dramatic victory over Derby County in the Championship Play-Off final, and want to add the experienced 32-year-old to their ranks, according to the Metro. Despite being rival clubs, Hangeland is reportedly ready to join Harry Redknapp’s side, in an attempt to keep his Premier League career going.

Hangeland spent 6 years at Craven Cottage, where he won a Europa League runners-up medal in 2010. But with the club’s future now in the Championship for at least one season, the centre-back will not be staying on.

Whilst QPR are looking to add Hangeland, they have also confirmed the departure of Yossi Benayoun, who has left London to return to his home country Israel, where he will play for Maccabi Haifa.
