Football: Hangeland extends with Fulham

altNorway international and Fulham captain Brede Hangeland has signed a two-year contract extension with the London Premier League club.

The 31-year-old's new deal also includes an option for a further year.

A statement on Fulham's website confirmed the extension: "Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce that captain Brede Hangeland has signed a two-year extension to his current contract, with an option for a further year, which will keep the defender at the club until at least the summer of 2015."

Hangeland, whose existing deal was due to expire at the end of the season, joined Fulham from FC Copenhagen in January 2008 and has since made 233 appearances for the club in all competitions.

"I'm so happy, delighted," Hangeland said on fulhamfc.com, and continued: "I've loved my time with Fulham. It's been a little over five years and I've felt right at home from the very first game."

Hangeland has played 70 matches with the Norwegian national team.
