Hangeland tired of switch speculation

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland insists he has no intention of leaving Craven Cottage to join Arsenal this summer.

The Norwegian has been a rock at the heart of the West London club's defence this season, making 43 appearances in all competitions to help guide Roy Hodgson's side to a European place.

As a result, Hangeland has been linked with a big-money move to the Emirates Stadium during the close-season, with Arsenal believed to be keen on securing his services to add both experience and a physical presence to their defence.

However, despite the speculation, the 27-year-old says he fully expects to still be a Fulham player in 2009/10.

"Speculation has become a part of daily life and at times it's quite tiring," he told Stavanger Aftenblad.

"I don't know anything about this story. Right now, there is no indication that I will change club."
