Fulham - He Isn`t Going Without a Fight!
With our second leg of the Europa League third qualifying tie fast approaching, speculation refuses to die relating to the future of Brede Hangeland.
We understand that Brede has yet to sign the new contract offered and Arsene Wenger is still, reportedly, poised to make a bid.
But, Roy Hodgson seems prepared for such a possibility and has intimated that he`ll resist and overtures from Arsenal, remarking in a media interview,
'As far as we're concerned we want Brede Hangeland to stay with us here,'
"We are going to be as desperate as a club can be to hold onto him."
'In the meantime the speculation will be abounding and we will get on with the job and try not to be too disturbed by them."
'He is happy here at Fulham and not desperately seeking a move elsewhere but we also know there are bigger clubs out there than Fulham and if one comes along we'll have to deal with the situation."
'Let's hope that is a bridge we don't have to cross.'
As we`ve said before though, money often talks!
