Arsenal Target Brede Hangeland Remains Committed To Fulham

The Norwegian stopper expects to line up for the Cottagers on the first day of the new season...
Fulham defender Brede Hangeland continues to dismiss rumours linking him with a move away from the club before the transfer window closes.

Arsenal are understood to be interested in the Norwegian centre-back after selling Kolo Toure to Manchester City.

Hangeland has chalked talk of his exit from Craven Cottage up to pure speculation, and expects to be in the Fulham squad to face Portsmouth on Saturday.

"At the moment it is just something written in the newspapers and I'm not too worried about that," he told Sky Sports News after Norway's 4-0 thrashing of Scotland in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday night.

"There is nothing to suggest otherwise for me, so I am preparing for the game with Portsmouth on Saturday."

With no concrete offers from Arsenal or any other clubs, Hangeland has refused to be moved by questions regarding his possible interest in a move to north London.

"That is something I will answer if that happens, so we will see," he said.

"At the moment I play for Fulham and I am very happy about that."
