Fulham - Roy Scuppers Hangeland Arsenal Deal?
With the media still linking Brede Hangeland with a multi-million pound move to Arsenal, Roy Hodgson pulled off something of a masterstroke last night and may well have put a spanner in the works.
In fact, Roy could well have ensured that Brede stays with Fulham for at least another season.
By selecting Hangeland for the Europa League tie in Lithuania last night, the tall Norwegian, if Arsenal insist on purchasing him, will not be able to play in any European competition until after January 2010.
Good thinking Roy!
