Former Fulham defender Brede Hangeland has signed a new one-year contract with Crystal Palace, the London club announced on Monday afternoon.

The 33-year-old Norwegian joined Palace 12 months ago after six seasons at Fulham, with his previous deal set to expire later this month.

Hangeland made a total of 17 appearances for Palace last campaign, 14 of which were in the Premier League.

Hangeland said "I'm delighted to have signed with Crystal Palace for the new season.

"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 in another successful one."

Hangeland joined Fulham in January 2008 from FC Copenhagen as Roy Hodgson's first signing.

Hangeland made an instant impact, helping the club achieve top-flight survival by winning four out of the final five matches the same season.

The Norwegian also featured prominently in the club's 2010 UEFA Europa League campaign which ended in the final after Diego Forlan's extra-time winner handed Atletico Madrid victory.

He went on to make 272 appearances for Fulham, scoring 12 goals.
