Brede Hangeland has distanced himself from a potential Craven Cottage departure. Reports are constantly suggesting that the Norwegian defender was set to leave Fulham in January but he has put them to rest by saying he is determined to remain and help the club climb the league table. "Of course I want people to think I have done well," he said of the speculation. But it can be a little bit stressful at time in the transfer window when I knew there is stuff written. "We've had two really good seasons now and it will be hard to top them. But if we can have a good year and finish maybe mid-table - perhaps a bit above that - we'll be happy with that."
