Hangeland, 32, signed a new two-year deal on March 2013 which was to extend his stay at Craven Cottage to 2015.

However he and the Whites, who he joined in January 2008 from FC Copenhagen as Roy Hodgson's first signing, have decided to part company after relegation from the Premier League.

Hangeland made an instant impact, helping the club achieve top-flight survival by winning four out of the final five matches the same season.

The Norwegian also featured prominently in the club's 2010 UEFA Europa League campaign which ended in the final after Diego Forlan's extra-time winner handed Atletico Madrid victory.

He went on to make 272 appearances for Fulham, scoring 12 goals.

A statement read: "The club would like to thank Brede for his six and a half years of committed service and wishes him the very best in all of his future endeavours."

Hangeland is the latest confirmed departure as manager Felix Magath prepares for life in the Sky Bet Championship.

Midfielders Damien Duff and Steve Sidwell have been released, along with Giorgos Karagounis, Mahamadou Diarra and John Arne Riise.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
