Queens Park Rangers are set to capture the signature of Fulham defender Brede Hangeland after the Norwegian deliberately set a difficult exit in motion from the relegated side, according to the Daily Mail.

The 32-year-old opted to reject the chance to leave the club on amicable terms after a mixed six-and-a-half years at Craven Cottage in order to pave the way for a move to his west London neighbours.

The big Norwegian did not want to play for Fulham in the Championship and agreed to the termination of his contract at Craven Cottage, which had a year left to run, in the hope of securing a £50,000-a-week deal at QPR and avoiding having to move house.

It is believed that the club had given him 24 hours in order to think about what he was going to tell the Fulham fans via a joint statement between himself and the club, only for him to accuse the Cottagers of sacking him via email.

Hangeland said he was ‘disappointed beyond words’ to be told of such ‘sad news’ in this manner, but Fulham insisted ‘personal protocol was followed’ and the player ‘was notified in the right way’.
