Hangeland's previous terms were due to expire in the summer and his agent suggested this week it was looking likely he could leave the Cottagers.

However, the 31-year-old, who signed for Fulham from FC Copenhagen in 2008, has agreed a new two-year deal with the club, with the option of a further year.

The Norway international has made 185 Premier League starts for Fulham, proving to be a key player in the heart of their defence.

Manager Martin Jol will be boosted by the news of his commitment as his 10th-placed team look to achieve a top-half finish with nine matches of the season remaining.
