Fulham are keen to tie defender Brede Hangeland down to a new deal before the January transfer window opens.
The Norwegian defender is out of contract at the end of the season and Fulham are eager to resolve the player's future.
Hangeland will be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January if he does not agree new terms at Craven Cottage and Fulham are keen to prevent the 31-year-old from leaving as a free agent at the end of the campaign.
If the west Londoners fail to convince Hangeland to sign a new deal prior to the January transfer window it has been reported they will seek to sell the centre-half, rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in the past but it remains to be seen if the Old Trafford side will step up their interest in the new year.
