Fulham have finalised a loan deal to bring AC Milan’s Urby Emanuelson to Craven Cottage until the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Fulham vs Manchester United tickets are on sale from £49 for the match at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
The highly-talented Netherlands international has found it hard to break into the Rossoneri first team this season, spending much of the campaign warming the substitutes’ bench, and as such the player leapt at the opportunity to play regular top-level football in the Premier League.
Fulham head coach Martin Jol was delighted with the 26-year-old’s capture, especially as the player can operate either as a left back or on the left-hand side of midfield.
“It is not easy to get players from AC Milan on a permanent basis,” Jol said of Emanuelson after Fulham’s 3-1 win over West Ham United on Wednesday night.
“I coached him at Ajax. He is a skilful player, very agile. He is very mobile, quick.
“He can play left midfield, wide, play No 10 so I feel we need fresh legs.”
And, Emanuelson is the second new face to arrive in west London on loan during the January transfer window following in the footsteps of midfield player Emmanuel Frimpong, who has joined from Arsenal.
