London - Norwegian international defender Brede Hangeland has joined Crystal Palace on Friday after claiming he was told by email by Fulham that he was no longer wanted.

The 33-year-old had also been wanted by Palace's Premier League rivals Hull City, according to British media.

Palace said that Hangeland had signed a one-year contract after six and a half years at London rivals Fulham, who were relegated last season.

He becomes Palace manager Tony Pulis' third signing for the new campaign following the arrivals of Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Kettings and Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell.

"I'm quite old school as a player, I just want to be part of a good group of players, working for a good manager, working really hard and driving something in the right direction," said Hangeland.

"It's a traditional club with a big following. I thought the atmosphere here was fantastic and obviously the fans had a lot to be happy about come the end of the season.

"If we can do something similar to that this season, that would be great," the Norwegian added.
