Hangeland has missed the last two games against Manchester United and Liverpool, and Fulham will be hoping the extended international break will mean he has recovered in time to face Swansea.
Sascha Riether remains sidelined as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension, while Matthew Briggs and Hugo Rodallega are out with hernia and groin problems respectively.
Swansea welcome back goalkeeper Michel Vorm after he served his suspension for his sending off in the recent defeat to Cardiff.
Gerhard Tremmel deputised for Vorm in the draw with Stoke, but the Dutchman is expected to come straight back into the starting line-up.
Spanish ace Michu remains sidelined with an ankle injury meaning Wilfried Bony will continue to lead the line in attack.
Pablo Hernandez (thigh) and Garry Monk (knee) are both still missing for Michael Laudrup's side.
