Martin Jol says Fulham are working on a new deal for captain Brede Hangeland but doesn’t expect it to happen immediately.

The Norway international’s current contract at Craven Cottage expires next summer, meaning the 31-year-old will be free to talk to other clubs in January.

His defensive partner Aaron Hughes signed a new contract last week but Fulham boss Jol expects a longer wait for Hangeland.

“That will take a bit longer because we don’t talk to him every day but there will be another appointment as we try to keep him here for the long term,” said Jol.

“If that is not possible then we will try to keep him for the next two years.”
