The 32-year-old is a free agent following his early release from Fulham and his representative, Rune Hauge, has revealed top-flight clubs have expressed an interest
The 32-year-old is on the lookout for a new club after Fulham opted to release him from his contract following their relegation from the top flight, despite him having 12 months to run on his deal.
Hangeland's next destination is as yet unknown, but the likes of West Ham and newly promoted QPR have been linked with his signature and Rune Hauge has confirmed his client would like to remain in England.
"There is interest from the Premier League," Hauge told Perform. "But Brede's on holiday. He was on the way to the airport when he got the message [that he had been released].
"It's a little bit difficult now, he has to finish that holiday time and take it from there."
Despite spending six years in London, Hauge insists that Hangeland is happy to play in the Premier League outside the capital - although he is not as yet tempted by a switch overseas.
He added: "No [it does not have to be London], he's interested in any Premier League club. So far, that [moving to Europe] is not a priority.
"At the moment, yes [he is only interested in the Premier League]. We'll discuss it when he's back from the holiday."
