Fulham defender Brede Hangeland wants to resume talks over a new deal at Craven Cottage.

The talismanic centre back has 18 months remaining on his current deal in west-London.

And with Arsenal having previously expressed an interest, Hangeland is keen to get his future sorted.

"I'm keen to talk," Hangeland said.

"There's been some speculation linking me with other clubs but I'm not sure how concrete it was.


"I've really enjoyed my time at Fulham and loved every minute of it. Maybe there's more to come.

"I just want to keep doing the best I can for the club."

Hangeland was one of those heavy linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, as they searched for defensive cover for the injury prone Thomas Vermaelen, eventually settling on signing Per Mertesacker.

Such has been the Norwegian's form since his move from FC Copenhagan in 2008, that many have rated Hangeland good enough to feature for one of the Premier League's elite, such as Arsenal, but the 30-year-old appears adamant he will stay at Fulham.
