Roy Hodgson has committed his immediate future to Fulham after recent reports linked him with taking over the Norwegian national side.

Hodgson has some fairly extensive experience of international management, having also coached Switzerland, Finland and the United Arab Emirates. He dismissed the prospect of taking charge of Norway – insisting he would be staying at Craven Cottage.

“In football you can never be certain what the future will bring but I see myself honouring my contract with Fulham. Hopefully they are as happy with me as I am with them.”
