Brede Hangeland: Yet to agree a new deal at Fulham

The Norwegian is out of contract at the end of the season and fresh terms have yet to be agreed.

The news has alerted a host of sides across Europe to Hangeland's possible availability on a free transfer this summer.

Hangeland's representative, Rune Hauge, has confirmed talks are ongoing with Fulham, but admitted the longer he goes without agreeing a new deal the chances of him staying at Craven Cottage are receding.

"We are still negotiating." Hauge told the Norwegian media.

"But the longer it takes to reach an agreement, the chance that he will stay is decreasing.

"At the same time, Brede is happy at Fulham and the club is happy with him. We will see in one or three months."

Asked about interest from other clubs in Hangeland, Hauge said: "Yes, there have been some enquiries about what is going on."

"That includes top clubs, but no offers. We do not have permission to negotiate with other English clubs yet."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
