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.
