Fulham to sign Urby Emanuelson from AC Milan on loan

Urby Emanuelson

Fulham are poised to sign Urby Emanuelson on loan from AC Milan for the rest of the season.

The Dutch international midfielder played for Fulham manager Martin Jol during his time in charge of Ajax.

A product of the Dutch club's youth system, 26-year-old Emanuelson has made 60 appearances for Milan since arriving in January 2011.

"He can play left midfield, wide, play number 10, [and] I feel we need fresh legs," said Jol.

"I coached him at Ajax. He is a skilful player, very agile. He is very mobile and quick," Jol added following Fulham's 3-1 win over West Ham.

Jol has already bolstered his midfield with the addition of Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong on loan, but is also looking to add to his defence with Stephen Kelly having left for Reading.
