Hangeland 'Would Consider' Move

Highly-rated Fulham centre-back Brede Hangeland has admitted he would onsider leaving Craven Cottage if a bigger club came calling for him. The giant defender's future in the capital has been the subject of constant speculation in recent months with a number of sides, including Arsenal and Manchester City, thought to be weighing up moves for his signature. Hangeland has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Premier League since his arrival at Fulham last January from FC Copenhagen. The Norway international admits he could be tempted by a move to one of the top clubs, but insists he has not heard about any firm interest in his services. "I have never heard anything concrete," Hangeland told Nettavisen. "I have been asked about the speculation many times in the past, but it is not worth thinking about something that may not be real. "Besides, it is better to be an important part of a slightly smaller club than to become lost at a big club. "Of course, everyone wants to win trophies. If a big club wanted me to join as one of their three centre-backs, I would consider it, as and when they approached me." Hangeland admits Fulham have a chance of qualifying for Europe next season, but he is adamant that no one at the club is getting carried away by their achievements this term. "We have a chance of getting into the UEFA Cup, yes, but we are not talking about that within the club," added Hangeland. "European football is just not something that is associated with Fulham. "I think most of us will just be happy to stay in the top half."
