Brede denies that he’s already rejected a new deal and says he’s happy at Fulham. Sounds promising but, as ever in football, it’s by no means definite.

I’ve never made any comments about the negotiations – and I never will. So if you read something about me having said something – it’s not true.

I’ve said all along I’m happy at Fulham – and I believe we can reach an agreement. They’ve said they’re happy with what I’ve done – and I’m happy with the club, and there’s no reason to think otherwise that I’ll be leaving.
