Hangeland signs new Crystal Palace deal

The Norwegian centre-back had been included on the Premier League released list but, after a strong campaign with the Eagles last season, has now agreed an extension
Brede Hangeland has agreed a new contract with Crystal Palace which will keep him at Selhurst Park for another season.

The Norway international joined Palace last year following his release from Fulham and made 14 Premier League appearances, helping them to a 10th-placed finish.

Hangeland had looked set to leave, having been included on the released list, but has put pen to paper on a new deal.

"I'm delighted to have signed with Crystal Palace for the new season," the 33-year-old told the club's official website.

"I have really enjoyed working under Alan Pardew and we have a very talented squad who are all a really good bunch of lads to be around.

"These are very exciting times at the club and I look forward to playing a part in making next year another successful one."
