Hangeland, who was released by Fulham in June, is being considered by Hull City as the Tigers look to add some experience to their centre-back position, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Hangeland will not add much to the Tigers attack, but he his addition to the defense could be worth an extra clean sheet or two. Despite being 32-years-old, he can still contribute to a team that needs help defensively.

Hangeland was released by Fulham on Wednesday, the club's official web site reports.

Hangeland joined the Whites in January 2008 and finishes his time at Craven Cottage with 272 total appearances. The 32-year-old still has plenty left in the tank, so he likely won't be unemployed for long.

Hangeland (head) was substituted early in Saturday's match against Chelsea after he appeared dazed from a collision earlier in the match, West London Sport reports. Fulham manager, Felix Magath, is hopeful Hangeland can return for the team's next match against Cardiff City.

Fulham clearly missed their captain as they surrendered all three goals after Hangeland left the pitch. If Hangeland is forced to miss more time, it will have a negative impact on the rest of the Fulham defenders' fantasy value.

Hangeland started and played all 90 minutes of Fulham's 3-0 FA Cup win over Norwich City on Tuesday.

Hangeland had surgery in December to address a nerve issue in his leg, and Tuesday's appearance was his first since the operation. As he was able to make it through all 90 minutes, he could very well be back in the starting XI again for Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal.

Hangeland will be out for another six weeks following surgery to remove nerve trouble, reports the Daily Mail.

Fulham hoped to have the defender avoid surgery, but that hasn't been the case. Hangeland has missed a month already, and will need a further six weeks to return to action.
