Hangeland happy at Fulham

Fulham central defender Brede Hangeland says he is more than happy to remain at Craven Cottage for the foreseeable future, following rumours of a move away from the club. The 27-year-old Norway international has been a star performer for the Cottagers this term, sparking talk of interest from the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, but Hangeland is in no rush to move on. He said: "It has gone well for me, personally. "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." Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson had earlier admitted that the club would struggle to fend off any major offers for Hangeland. He commented: "If a serious offer comes our way for Brede, I'm pretty sure it will have to be considered. "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."
