Fulham Loan Milan Ace

Fulham have secured a transfer coup by agreeing to sign Urby Emanuelson on loan from AC Milan for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old Dutch international midfielder has slipped down the pecking order at the San Siro of late, and Fulham manager Martin Jol has managed to convince his compatriot to seek regular football at Craven Cottage.

Before he moved to Milan in 2011, Emanuelson had been on the transfer radar of a host of Premier League clubs, and he will now turn out in England’s top flight for the Cottagers.

The tricky left-sided player is on his way to London for a medical, and is looking forward to getting his season back on track with Fulham.

"I will finish the season with a loan deal," Emanuelson told De Telegraaf.

"I have worked in a very good way with him [Jol] at Ajax and am happy as he gives me the chance.

"Martin has a lot of confidence in me and that's what I need right now. At AC Milan I ended up on the bench from nowhere and I was really shocked with that. The previous two months were hard.

"At my age it is important to play week in, week out."
