Fulham are ready to restart talks with Brede Hangeland in order to prevent the centre back from leaving Craven Cottage on a free transfer, according to the Daily Mail.

The club’s hierarchy are desperate to keep the Norwegian captain in London and sign him to a long-term deal. Manager Martin Jol sees the 31 year-old vital to his future plans and Fulham are ready to reward Hangeland for both his consistent performances and his loyalty by increasing his £40,000-per-week wages.

But Hangeland has so far resisted signing a new deal after more than six months of discussions and will be able to talk to potential foreign suitors in January. Jol and chief executive Alistair Mackintosh are set to reopen negotiations with Hangeland’s representatives in order to hammer out a deal.
